Music of the Baroque: Baroque Heroes

Guest conductor Patrick Dupré Quigley explores the concept of “hero” in an energetic, whimsical program. The soloist is the hero of C. P. E. Bach’s Cello Concerto. From the ridiculous to the sublime, Telemann and Rameau offer rich musical depictions of literary heroes. J. S. Bach was his son’s hero—as C. P. E. wrote in his father’s obituary, “Our Bach was the greatest organist and clavier player that we have ever had.” And dance music composers from earlier generations are the great heroes of Baroque orchestral music. South Chicago Dance Theatre brings dances from Michael Praetorius’s Terpsichore to life through world-premiere choreography by founder and artistic director Kia Smith.
