The Hamburger Ratsmusik – an ensemble looking back on a five-hundred-year
history – teams up with the young countertenor Benno Schachtner on this
recording of Georg Philipp Telemann’s Six Moral Cantatas. Moral lessons
from Telemann? Not at all! During the decades between 1720 and 1750 the
middle class of the early Enlightenment sought moral education and ethical
improvement deriving from human nature and reason as part of its
never-ending quest for earthly happiness. It was with wit and charm that in
his Moral Cantatas of 1735 Telemann set to music a poetic document
conveying the spirit of this Enlightenment period. His only recently
rediscovered Fantasies for Solo Viola da Gamba, published at the same time,
are presented here in alternation with his Moral Cantatas, the title with
which they were announced in a catalogue dating from August 1735. These two
collections first performed together during a concert of the Hamburger
Ratsmusik at the last Telemann Festival are now being presented here for
the first time on CD. These two works by Telemann were intended for
professional and amateur musicians alike, and they seem to have met with
special resonance among those interested parties who wanted to perform at
home in smaller ensembles.
