Freiburger Barockorchester / »Seliges Erwägen«

Telemann Festival

This concert has already taken place!

Previous EventNext Event

In 18th-century Hamburg, Rostock or Riga, performances of Telemann’s »Seliges Erwägen« (The Blessed Contemplation of the Bitter Suffering and Death of Jesus Christ) had a firm place in the concert calendar. But over the course of the 19th century, the formerly successful work gradually fell into oblivion. Gottfried von der Goltz and the Freiburger Barockorchester revive the memory of a piece that hasn’t been heard in Hamburg for far too long.
