  • Houston-Leipzig – Multi-Media Presentation by Prof. Jeff Sposato
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    2018.09.14

    Dear Members and Friends,

    We cordially invite you to a fun evening on Friday, September 14, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at Brazos Bookstore with a multi-media presentation by Prof. Jeff Sposato, Moores School of Music (UH), about the music scene in Leipzig after the death of Johann Sebastian Bach. Dr. Sposato has written a delightful book: Leipzig After Bach.

    We will start with a wine and cheese reception at 6:30 p.m. at Brazos Book Store, 2421 Bissonnet, Houston, TX 77005; Prof. Sposato’s presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m., and we hope to see you all there. Please RSVP below.

    Leipzig is renowned as the city where Johann Sebastian Bach worked as a church musician until his death in 1750, and where Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy directed the famed Gewandhaus orchestra until his own death in 1847. But the century in between these events was critically important as well. During this period, Leipzig’s church music enterprise was convulsed by repeated external threats-a growing middle class that viewed music as an object of public consumption, religious and political tumult, and the chaos of the Seven Years and Napoleonic wars.
