Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • Prolific composer Georg Philip Telemann was a contemporary of J. S. Bach and as, if not more, famous in his day than Bach.
  • The Apollo Ensemble play a selection of Telemann's chamber works, of varying instrumentation.
  • The Apollo Ensemble is a superb period instrument ensemble based in The Netherlands.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
These are pieces full of imagination and clever exploitation of instrumental colors. This group plays their period instruments with the utmost skill, but also great pleasure. And that is the point: these are all meant to be enjoyable for the players. For the hearers, it is superlative "easy listening". Vivid sound makes it all the easier. Even the most satiated Telemanniac will still relish this one.

Notes & Reviews:
