Newton Baroque: Andrus Madsen

January 7 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Newton Baroque will present The Leipzig Candidates 1723 — Andrus Madsen on harpsichord playing works of Bach, Telemann, and Graupner. All three composers were candidates for the post of Thomas Cantor in Leipzig in 1723. Johann Sebastian Bach was appointed after the first two candidates declined!  Purchase tickets here.

“Andrus Madsen … an active performer on the organ, harpsichord clavichord and fortepiano .. is the Minister of Music at Second Church in Newton … and the founding director of Newton Baroque. …He is known for his eloquent Baroque style improvisation. He strives to play written repertoire as if he is improvising, while his improvisations often sound as if they had been notated.”
