Handel the way through the day
If the morning alarm clock refuses to work and you have missed Anna Torge and Michael Freimuth at Seeburg Lake: They will be returning to Café George at 2.30 pm. And today, coffee, cake and culture will be served at "Liesels"!
Café George is a one-stop shop: piece by piece, Jochen Schäfsmeier guides the listener through the concert while coffee and cake are served. A congenial setting, entirely in the style of Leipzig’s Café Zimmermann. From 1723 until the death of its namesake Gottfried Zimmermann in 1741, performances of the Collegium Musicum, which Georg Philipp Telemann founded at the beginning of the 18th century, were held there. None other than Johann Sebastian Bach led this ensemble between 1729 and 1739 and performed many of his secular cantatas and instrumental pieces in Zimmermann’s Caffe-Hauß. Café George also boasts a number of noteworthy names and is worth a visit for sure. Check it out!
