Georg Philipp Telemann was Hamburg’s »Director Musices« for 46 years, from 1721 to 1767. He was, even beyond his long tenure in Hamburg, one of the most influential figures of the European Baroque. On 25 June 2017, the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death, the renowned concert series »NDR Das Alte Werk«, in a large-scale cooperation with the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, presents a multifaceted festival featuring outstanding performers in honour of the composer.
