Notes & Reviews:

When Telemann began writing concertos, he already had a solid foundation as a skillful violinist, and among the concertos recorded here are the two double violin concertos in G major. No less a musician than J.S. Bach, then Kapellmeister in Weimar, copied out one of them. The concerto for violin and trumpet is the most Italianate of the concertos presented here, and the e minor concerto for recorder and traverso is one of Telemann's best known concertos. The recordings are by the superb baroque ensemble, Rebel, under the leadership of Jörg-Michael Schwarz. This CD is the latest in a series Rebel has made for Bridge, including the recent, Vivaldi: Venetian Dreams (the complete op. 10 recorder/flute concertos, with recorder virtuoso, Matthias Maute) BRIDGE 9377.

Reviews

A welcome reminder
I always forget about Telemann. Unlike his contemporaries Bach and Handel, he didn't write anything that became a breakout hit, like the "Air on a G String," or "Water Music." But his music was all of a very high quality, full of inventiveness and skill -- as Rebel reminded me with this new recording of Telemann double concerti.

Played with authentic instruments, Rebel presents these works as fresh, robust compositions, brimming with energy. And that makes this a very appealing recording.

The soloists balance nicely between authentic performance practices and individual expression. As a result, these concertos sound like living, breathing works rather than museum pieces.

Recording Rebel in a church was an excellent call. The ambiance is well-suited to the ensemble, vibrant enough to give the music depth, yet intimate enough to hear every detail.

This release is a welcome reminder, indeed.
