Kleine Kammermusik brings us woodwind chamber gems from two great High Baroque figures: Bach and Zelenka. The masters knew and admired one another, and they worked in close proximity, in Leipzig and nearby Dresden. Their highly distinctive personalities and consummate mastery are famed for their legacy of profound counterpoint, but also for brilliant melody, deft harmonic interplay, and unparalleled musical drama.

Won't you join us to hear superb woodwind masterworks of the Baroque, as played by this wonderfully expressive quintet?

Suggested donation $10.
