Telling Tales with Telemann

A dazzling baroque masterpiece, Telemann’s Essercizii Musici is a colourful feast of 24 musical delights. Over a year, our audience will be treated to monthly instalments of solo and trio sonatas, a sacred cantata and a fable by Aesop. Featuring many player members, rising stars and student readers from our home, Acland Burghley School, these twelve programmes tell profound stories of art, faith and learning, through music.
