Notes & Reviews:

Georg Philipp Telemann published his "12 Fantasies" for solo violin in Hamburg in 1735. These pieces place him firmly in the tradition, established in the late 17th century, of such renowned violinists as Carlo Ambrogio Lonati, Francesco Geminiani, Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, and Johann Paul von Westhoff, culminating with J.S. Bach, who published his famous cycles of sonatas and partitas for solo violin around 1720. The focal point of such works was to produce rich contrapuntal harmonies on a solo melody instrument in music that went beyond pure practice pieces and captivated its listeners. Telemann succeeded in this by avoiding virtuosic acrobatics by the instrumentalist and instead allowing the catchy tunes and dance rhythms to prevail.

This recording features Ori Kam, brother of clarinetist Sharon Kam, playing a version for solo viola in which the pieces have been transposed down by a fifth but are otherwise unchanged. The tone of the viola, warm in the lower register and possessing brilliance in the high notes, lends the works a new dimension of expression in comparison to the original. Ori Kam, playing in the Jesus-Christus Church in Berlin, draws from his instrument a sound that transcends all constraint and lets the listener simply float away with the music.

Expedition Audio Recommended
... Gallant dance pieces, graceful slow movements and sections of vigorous contrapuntal invention appear in ingenious succession. Each of the twelve Fantasies is very short, averaging only about six minutes... The brevity of the movements in contrasting tempos, the rich invention of Telemann's melodic and harmonic invention and Ori Kam's warm and nuanced playing combine for delightfully enjoyable listening. ... read more ...
