"The Collegium at the Coffeehouse" - A Night of Early Music
Presented by When Notes Fly...
December 1, 2011
New England Conservatory's student-led Early Music Society presents a program of 18th-century works on period instruments such as might have been heard at Zimmerman's Coffee House in Leipzig, where the Collegium Musicum of Leipzig University rehearsed under the leadership of none other than J. S. Bach. While Herr Bach can't be present this afternoon, we'll be representing him with his parodic "Coffee Cantata," alongside works of his Italian contemporaries.
