Of Note for Monday June 8, 2015: Telemann's Baroque Gypsies
Telemann once wrote of his encounters with Eastern European gypsy music, "One can hardly believe what wonderful imaginative ideas these pipers and fiddlers have as they improvise. In only a week, a composer could be inspired for an entire lifetime." The composer wrote many pieces simply titled "Gypsy Pieces" of which Ensemble Caprice recorded for an album called The Baroque Gypsies. Tune in to Monday's program to hear a few of these playful & innovative pieces.
