Festival Details - "The Wheatland Concert Series, Baroque Chamber Quartet and Wine Dinner"...

Start: Saturday, March 16, 2024 7:00PM
End: Saturday, March 16, 2024 9:00PM

While the snow and cold temperatures try to hold on, the days are growing noticeably longer, the jonquils are beginning to poke through the cold earth and the early fruit trees are starting to form buds... The cycle of life is renewed! Spring is in the air!

And what better way to celebrate Spring than the haunting beautiful sound of a baroque quartet performing the inspired sonatas of Georg Philipp Telemann and Marin Marais.

I would like to extend a warm invitation for you to join us for our 2024 season debut on March 16th.

We have a fantastic ensemble of musicians performing on the 16th led by Professor Mark Janello, Johns Hopkins University Peabody Conservatory on harpsichord, Ms. Gracie Carney performing an original violin from the 1600s, Mr. Jacob Jahiel on viola da gamba (grandfather of the modern cello) and Ms. Sarah Shoja on Baroque recorder.

Georg Philipp Telemann was a contemporary of Johann Sebastian Bach and actually the godfather of his son Johann Christian Bach. Born the son of a Lutheran Pastor in 1681, Telemann originally intended to study law. But young Georg felt his gifts were elsewhere and by time he was 19 he somehow taught himself to play 12 instruments and compose his own music.

Telemann is listed in the Guiness Book of Records as the world's most prolific composer, responsible for some 3,000 works: three times as many as Bach and five times as many as Mozart. Somehow, he found time for his 11 children and his study of botany, where he was recognized across Europe not only as a leading composer but an authority on plants.

Unlike Telemann, Marin Marais was the son of a poor shoemaker born in Paris in 1656. He was educated in a choir school and in 6 months he was said to be bested his teacher. He was hired by the French royal court at Versailles in 1679 where he was appointed, "ordinaire de la chambre du roi pour la viola." The father of 19 children, Marais was a prolific composer of French Baroque music especially for the viol, authoring hundreds of sonatas, operas and sacred works.

We are pairing this quartet recital with an exquisite candlelit dinner during intermission of Chicken Cordon Bleu, served with fresh Spring asparagus and new potatoes, with a Dijon creme sauce and imported French wines.

We hope you can join us on March 16th for an evening of Baroque chamber music and sumptuous dining under the ancient stone walls and hand hewed timbers of Shiloh Manor Farm.
