Houston Early Music will present a performance by Kleine Kammermusik, an ensemble known for creating fresh, entertaining events with a distinctively historic flavor. Kleine Kammermusik will showcase woodwind chamber gems from two High Baroque figures: Johann Sebastian Bach and Jan Dismas Zelenka. Each composer has a legacy of profound counterpoint — setting different melodic lines against each other — and also for brilliant melody, deft harmonic interplay and musical drama.
