The Leipzig coffee house Café Zimmermann was known in its day as a hot spot and backdrop for performances by Bach's Collegium Musicum. The café saw the premiere of many of Bach's well-known works, as well as the music of other composers.

In tribute to the café's spirit, BCSD opens the season with four of Bach's dazzling Brandenburg Concertos, as well as the ravishing wedding cantata "Weichet nur, betrübte Schatten" sung by the inimitable soprano Clara Rottsolk. Historically informed performance by Bach Collegium San Diego.
