Telemann 360°: Music in and from Telemann’s Era in Philadelphia


Free, registration required

Running Time: 2 Hours


  • Glenda Goodman, Assistant Professor of Music
  • April James, Reading Room Coordinator, Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts
  • Liza Vick, Head, Otto E. Albrecht Music Library and Eugene Ormandy Music and Media Center

Join us for an informal show-and-tell or  “play-tell-play” approach focusing on what people listened to in Telemann’s era and around it. We will explore repertoire such as Moravian hymns, British comic opera, Francis Hopkinson, and jumping into later periods to hear how the Philadelphia Orchestra performed Telemann under various conductors.

We’ll continue the discussion in Lea Library with materials on display. Among the highlights are manuscripts of Francis Hopkinson, and annotated scores of Eugene Ormandy and Leopold Stokowski.

An informal selection of published editions of Telemann will be on display in the Otto E. Albrecht Music Library from September 20-October 15, 2017 (Monday-Friday 9-5). Location and access information here:
