The Art of Counterpoint

  • St. Stephen's Episcopal Church 19 South 10th Street Philadelphia, PA 19105 United States (map)

A program demonstrating the richness of contrapuntal invention from the two great High Baroque masters. Working in close proximity to each other--Leipzig and Dresden, the capital of Saxony just 100km distance--Bach and Zelenka knew and admired each other. From their distinctive personalities they each developed equally intricate and dazzlingly virtuosic styles of counterpoint.
