This 4-CD-set presents the recordings with Georg Philipp Telemann’s music for transverse flute made by Barthold Kuijken for the Accent label. His technical and artistic mastery can be heard both a solo (his legendary recording of the 12 Fantasias for solo flute are included here) and together with some of his long-standing chamber music partners, including his brothers Sigiswald (violin) and Wieland (viola da gamba), and Robert Kohnen (harpsichord). To the beautiful, complete set of Sonate metodiche, this inspired and inspiring survey adds the Suite in D minor for flute, violin and continuo, the Quartet in G major for flute, 2 violas da gamba and continuo, and the Cantata “Ihr Völker hört”, with the guest appearance of countertenor René Jacobs. This box is yet another important step in the current re-appreciation of Telemann’s exquisite compositional output.
