Event 27 - A Gift For Your Garden : Ensemble Hesperi

Details

The Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann, one of the most prolific composers of all time, created a much-envied garden later in life at his Hamburg residence. Always searching for new and unusual specimens, he wrote on many occasions to his good friend Handel in London, asking for plants from England. “I am insatiable”, he wrote, “where hyacinths and tulips are concerned, greedy for ranunculi, and especially for anemones.” This programme presents a cornucopia of music by Telemann and his horticultural correspondents.
