Georg Philipp Telemann
« on: April 15, 2007, 10:55:37 AM »
Of course Telemann is a big issue in my collection, and I find that a few of the last recordings I bought are stunning in performance and sound. Credit must go to the best Musique de Table I ever heard, and that is rather a understatement as there ever was.
And the second instalment of the Complete Overtures on Brilliant by the fine Collegium Instrumentale Brugense, under their new conductor Patrick Peire. Also a stunning release. The first volume was good, but this second volume is even better in its sheer musicality.
Please add your favourites, present or from the past, and make this a fine lively Telemann thread.

Surprisingly I don't have any dedicated Telemann disc.  :-\

Well that is a great surprise for me, knowing that you love the baroque era very much.

I would be interested what your thoughts are about the Tafelmusic! :)

Some of the overtures or suites and concertos are beautiful. But the complete work is too long and I see no relation between the different works that are included in each of the three parts. That is why I prefer to have only excerpts when, before, in LP, I had the complete work with Goebel. The recording I mentioned before, of Florilegium, includes the nice suite in E minor, the Quartets in G major and D minor (with a very beautiful Largo) and the Trio in E flat major.

I have one more recording than you ;D

Telemann is the most boring composer, ever.

None of his music was meant to be listened to but serve, merely, as background music.

So there >:D

No, no, let me thank you for the perceptive in-depth analysis of the composer's music that almost persuaded me to rush out and buy a disc of his Toffeemuzak! >:D

I heard worst, but i'm definitely not in a rush to buy recordings of his music. I have the Tafelmusik (Telemann stated this collection would have made him famous 'some day', from which i extrapolate he put a little more craft into it then usual), and i think that's shall suffice.
