No man is an island. Baroque composers did not create in a vacuum: they had colleagues, rivals, patrons and protegés, all of whom contributed to the musical landscape of the era. In this year’s concert series, we focus on three different composers, exploring their environment, influences and legacies.
Concerts at Gallery 78
Our intimate Fredericton series takes place at Crocket House, a historical home-turned-art-gallery overlooking the Saint John River. Concerts start at at 2pm on Sunday afternoons.

Johann Jakob Froberger was the foremost keyboard player and composer of the 17th century, and one of the only composers to focus exclusively on keyboard works. In addition to his deeply personal and emotional music, he is famous for his extensive travels throughout Europe. Follow his journeys through Germany, Italy, England, and France, and hear some of the music he heard and inspired along the way.

More popular than Bach in his day, and one of the most prolific composers ever, Georg Philipp Telemann’s works were unfairly neglected by historians and performers for much of the 19th century. With their quirky sense of timing and unique blend of French, Italian, and Polish styles, it is hard to resist their charm.

Johann Sebastian Bach was, without a doubt, one of the greatest composers ever to have lived. But that didn’t stop him from reusing his own music and that of others, both to save time, and to study new styles of composition. This concert is entirely dedicated to the innovative ways that Bach recycled music.
