“While music, which affords me many of my most heart-felt pleasures, is my field and plough, I have recently become attached to another suitor – the love of flowers.” So said George Philipp Telemann in 1742, revealing one of his greatest passions in life, known practically throughout Europe. For his pleasure his friend Georg Friedrich Händel would even sent him the most beautiful flowers and bulbs from all over England, which did not, however, prevent Telemann from growing his own kind of peony...


Even from his garden, the German giant drew inspiration that still touches the hearts of the listeners, as it arises from the earth and ascends to heaven. Collegium Marianum with Jana Semerádová will complement his music with musical buds from Jean-Féry Rebel and Michel Blavet. Will they be able to cheer up the faces of the stone Titans on the steps of Troja chateau?
