The Leipzig Inspiration
Bach, Fasch and Telemann were linked by their connections to Leipzig, where Bach was eventually Cantor and civic director of music. After an overture, Telemann’s Burlesque de Quixotte programmes six pieces in the form of Baroque dances to illustrate scenes in Cervantes’s novel from the start of the knight’s quest to his dreams at the end of the day.
