    A German Vespers: Music of Johann Kaspar Ferdinand Fischer (1701)

    Johann Kaspar Ferdinand Fischer (1656-1746) may not be wellknown today, but he was one of the premiere composers of his generation. Active in Baden-Baden, in the southwest corner of modern Germany, he was well versed in both French and Italian styles. On September 29, Exsultemus and Newton Baroque will collaborate to perform a reconstruction of an early 18th-century Fischer Vespers, consisting mostly of music from Fischer’s 1701 Vesperae printed in Augsburg. This vespers reconstruction will also include instrumental works appropriate for Vespers by Franz Xavier Murschhauser (1663 – 1738), and Johann Christoph Pez (1664 –1716). Don’t miss this opportunity to hear these rare South German treasures performed by Boston’s finest, in the resplendent acoustic of Second Church in Newton.
