ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Vespetta, a clever maid, is looking for a wealthy and naive husband who will be able to free her from the humiliation of plebeian life. The young maid wraps the old Pimpinone around her finger, who entrusts her with the keys to his own cash register and takes her as his wife. The girl transforms from a very nice being into a real hag, her only goal is to make quick money and a good social position. So we are dealing with a cruel farce, without any trace of love illusions. When the new lady of the house parades around town dressed in the most beautiful dresses, the old husband trembles before her hellish temperament and carefully planned intrigues.

GEORG PHILIPP TELEMANN (1681-1767)
An outstanding German composer of the Baroque era. His life was dominated by an extraordinary passion for music, which blossomed already in his childhood. At the age of only 12, he created his first opera. Although his family wanted him to choose a more stable profession, his mother confiscated his musical instruments, but this did not stop his passion for music. Telemann not only studied law, but also developed his musical skills. He became a versatile musician, mastering many instruments, such as recorder and transverse flute, shawm, oboe, trombone, organ, harpsichord, violin, viola da gamba and double bass. Telemann began his musical career as musical director of the Leipzig Opera in 1702, and later took up the position of organist at the New Church in Leipzig. There he founded the Collegium Musicum, bringing together students, which contributed to increasing his reputation as a composer and conductor. The following years of Telemann’s musical career included travels around Germany and employment in various positions, including bandmaster of the Counts of Promnitz. During this period, he had the opportunity to learn Polish folk music and dances, which became the inspiration for his later instrumental compositions. In 1721 he settled in Hamburg, where he served as a cantor and conductor of church music. There he developed his operatic work, becoming one of the most important opera composers of the late Baroque period. His operas competed with the works of Reinhard Keiser, and Telemann became the leading composer in Hamburg. Its importance in the history of music is enormous. Telemann was one of the most prolific composers of all time, leaving behind over 3,000 works. His music was extremely popular during his lifetime, although at some point it fell into obscurity, only to be appreciated again in the 20th century. Telemann maintained contacts with other outstanding composers, such as Handel and Bach, which influenced their mutual inspiration and exchange of ideas. Telemann also had the opportunity to encounter Polish music during his stay at the court of Count Promnitz in Żary. There he learned folk music and dance traditions, which influenced his compositions, which feature Polish motifs. His rich musical legacy includes cantatas, masses, passions, oratorios, operas, orchestral suites, concertos for various solo instruments, harpsichord pieces, sonatas and many others. Telemann became famous for his ability to create music accessible to a wide audience, which contributed to his popularity and influence on the development of baroque music.
