Introduction: 7:00 pm


It was a recording by a solo oboist from the Berliner Philharmoniker that awakened in Jonathan Kelly the desire to become a musician. After training at the London Royal Academy of Music and the Paris Conservatoire, Kelly acquired initial experience as a solo oboist with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, before switching in 2003 to the same position in his musical role model’s orchestra. In this concert by the Berliner Barock Solisten, Kelly can be experienced as interpreter of virtuoso oboe concertos from the Baroque period. T

he programme contains the music of three composers born in the penultimate decade of the 17th century whose work had a lasting influence on the course of Western music history. The music of Johann Friedrich Fasch, born in 1688 near Weimar, was highly esteemed by none other than Johann Sebastian Bach. And Fasch’s son Carl Friedrich Christian, born in 1736, made Berlin music history by founding the Sing-Akademie, which later initiated a renaissance of Bach’s music.

Georg Philipp Telemann saw the light of the world in Magdeburg in 1681, and made Hamburg a musical centre with an international profile. And the third member of the group, Georg Friedrich Händel, born in Halle an der Saale in 1685? His success story as an early musical cosmopolitan culminated in Great Britain – oboist Jonathan Kelly’s home country.
