A Musical Party: Reincken and Friends

In 1674, the artist Johannes Voorhout documented a noteworthy friendship in his painting A Musical Party. It was commissioned by Hamburg organist Johann Adam Reincken as a testament to his friendship with Dieterich Buxtehude, who worked in Lübeck. We'll hear music by both composers, plus that of Johann Theile, who may also be portrayed in the painting.
