Free early music concert(s) in Philadelphia this weekend

Rescued by the Red Army
rediscovering Johann Gottlieb Janitsch

Shimmering surfaces, beautiful counterpoint and heart-melting melodies won Janitsch’s chamber music the ranking of “the best” in his day. His modern revival just got an exciting boost with newfound manuscripts—carried off by the Red Army during World War II, stashed in Ukraine, and now repatriated to Berlin—which we'll perform in their modern world premieres.

I've been consistently delighted by their music, and I strongly recommend showing up if you have even the slightest interest in early music. I'll be at the Philadelphia show--let me know if you'd like to get together before and/or after.
