Telemann at His Best Vol. 2
As on Vol. 1, so too on Vol. 2 of Telemann’s concertos for mixed solo ensembles: it is to be assumed that the composer wrote them either as festive opening pieces for vocal works or as showpieces for particular instrumental virtuosos or ensembles. Once again the concertos exhibit high compositional quality and Telemann’s frequently cited »mixed style« in their wealth of motivic shapes and widely spanned harmonic developments. Here the interpreters are once again our expert Telemann project advocates: Michael Schneider with the soloists and musicians of La Stagione! »Performed with great variety and magic. A new Telemann series promising magnificent musical highlights and truly giving us pleasure« (klassik. com 12 / 2014 of Vol. 1).
