Violinist Elizabeth Blumenstock leads Philharmonia on a tour of works by musical innovators, including Johann Sebastian Bach’s Ricercar a 6 from The Musical Offering – originally composed for Frederick the Great. Georg Muffat’s Nobilis Juventus includes sections dedicated to the Spanish, the Dutch, the English, and the Italians. Georg Philipp Telemann’s overture, Les Nations, is even more peripatetic, and includes movements dedicated to the Turks, the Swiss, the Muscovites, and the Portuguese.
