Tafelmusik (“table music”) means music to accompany a banquet. Telemann (1681-1767) one of the most beloved composers in the German Baroque, wrote several collections in this genre which demonstrate his compositional prowess, as the music alternates between thrilling ensemble music and virtuosic solo playing.
The concert will take place on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 4 p.m. at Roswell Presbyterian Church, 755 Mimosa Boulevard in Roswell. Tickets are $25 for regular admission on the day of the show, with discounts for advance purchase, seniors, students, and groups. Purchase tickets online.
