The Godfather

A feast of instrumental colour with oboes, bassoons, trumpets, trombone timpani, strings and continuo by the finest composers of the baroque

The musical world of eighteenth century Europe was a small one.  Despite the problems presented by the contemporary standards of transport, it was quite normal for composers in one part of Europe to be entirely au fait with what was happening elsewhere.  This is born out by the closeness of three German composers: Pisendel, godfather to one of Telemann’s children; Telemann, godfather to C.P.E.Bach; and J.S. Bach, who admired both his compatriots and compsed some astoundingly difficult music for the violinist Pisendel.

This programme celebrates their music as well as the music of those who contributed to their musical heritage.  Included alongside the German triumvirate are works by Vivaldi who physically helped with the composition of Pisendel’s A minor concerto movement, Fasch who was a great friend of Pisendel and Telemann, and Brescianello, an Italian who helped the dissemination of Italian instrumental music throughout the German-speaking lands and whose concertos were played in Dresden by Pisendel.

Being a mountain goat is no fun when you are scared of heights! Stand poor Giddy on a mountain ledge and his head starts spinning and his knees turn to jelly. But can he find the fearless goat inside himself in time to rescue little Edmund?

With lots of audience participation, image projections from the books and brilliant music and musicians, this live concert will delight young audiences, families and friends of all generations in equal measure.

Based on the book by Jamie Rix and Lynne Chapman with original music from Music in the Round's award-winning Children's Composer in Residence, Paul Rissmann.
