Notes & Reviews:

This most important first release marks the start of a major extended project to record, close to entirety, the world's most famous, historic and valuable violins. Some of these prized instruments have not been played for centuries, being specially released for this Peter Sheppard Skaerved-created series by Divine Art Recordings and its Athene label. This initial, double-disc album finds Mr. Skaerved playing the complete Telemann Violin and Flute Fantasies on the oldest violin of them all, the sublime Andrea Amati instrument of 1570. As well as being internationally recognized as a leading interpreter of music new and old, Peter Sheppard Skærved is the only violinist to have performed on the personal violins of Viotti, Paganini, Joachim, Kreisler and Ole Bull. This new series will feature the acclaimed violinist playing music on these and other rare instruments, many of which only he has been granted access to.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
This is music that Telemann wrote for unaccompanied instruments. The works for violin have been transcribed for viola, and the works for flute can easily be played by violin. These were obviously written either for a situation where there was only one musician available or for private enjoyment by a violinist and flutist. They are pleasing works, and I have played them. I can recommend these recordings for their historical interest: Peter Sheppard Skaerved plays on one of the oldest surviving violins, an Andrea Amati made in 1570. I can also recommend them for Skaerved's superb, very scholarly notes on each of the fantasies.
