Notes & Reviews:

Given the frequency of performances and recordings of his music today, it is hard to imagine that prior to 1970, Telemann's music was not held in high esteem. It is thanks to the pioneering work of groups like La Petite Bande that listeners today can enjoy the rich bounty of Telemann's music. This recording of a varied selection of his concertos and suites with recorder features soloist Bart Coen.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2015
Sigiswald Kuijken's long experience, sound expertise in interpretative detail and overall stylistic wisdom are perfect for Telemann ... Bart Coen's virtuosity consists of a liquid clarity and precision uncomplicated by flashiness, and Kuijken, unexpectedly turning up on viola da gamba, is strong and assured.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The program includes the Suite in A minor for recorder and the Suite in D for viola da gamba. The overtures are massive, composed in a binary-form that contrasts a slow A section (with majestic, dotted rhythms) and a fast B section (with an imitative texture). There follow dances like the minuet, polonaise, sarabande, bourTe, and gigue that are generally lighter in character and exploit various nuances associated with the dance. The recorder suite is particularly impressive for the demands it makes of the soloist. It was clearly meant to impress, and in the hands of Michael Bhm (the original soloist) it surely must have. The Concerto in A minor has a concertino of recorder and viola da gamba, and here solo episodes do alternate with strings. The delight in works such as these comes in listening to the instruments compete with each other while at the same time blending in ensemble. The brilliance of Telemann's writing shines through on every track. It is gorgeous music and played extremely well by this talented group of musicians.
