Product Description

The six concerto gems on the final volume of cpo's complete recording of Telemann's wind concertos once again display a great many different ensemble groupings (and often unusual ones), concerto procedures, and forms as well as some broadly dimensioned works.

Review

'This is a fitting end to an immensely worthwhile series...the most comprehensive picture yet of the astonishing fecundity and musical fertility of this ever fascinating composer.' --IRR, December 2012, Nicholas Anderson

By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Dec 2012
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to believe that there have now been eight CDs from cpo filled with wind concertos written by Telemann. They've all been conducted by flutist Michael Schneider who leads primarily La Stagione Frankfurt (with a few performances are by Camerata Köln). The 'maybe' in my review's title comes from the fact that a) more concertos may turn up [that happens more than you might expect] and b) there is difficulty making a distinction between a concerto and a sonata in late baroque music. Be that as it may this series as currently constituted comprises many lovely and previously unheard works. I've enjoyed every one that has come my way, e.g., Telemann: Wind Concertos, Vol. 2 and Telemann: Wind Concertos, Vol. 4.

I note that the content of the disc can be discerned if you click on the picture of the back of the CD case. For me the best of the lot -- and they're all wonderful -- are the ones for unusual combinations, e.g. for 2 Chalumeaus and continuo (the chalumeau was a precursor of the modern clarinet with holes only, no keys); the two played here are in the alto and tenor range and the strings in this concerto are muted, making for a gentle, mellow sound. The one for natural trumpet (as well as with two natural oboes) is amazingly virtuosic for the soloist and the playing of the soloist here, Hannes Rux, is nothing short of awe-inspiring. I was slightly less enthusiastic about the one for two horns, but one can certainly picture riding to the hunt in this one! There is also one for two flutes, one for oboe and another for oboe d'amore, all vintage Telemann.

Much as my previous comments on Vol. 1: I liked it because I like Telemann, and the general presentation was OK - but I wish the soloists would just play the score, without sometimes ridiculous embellishments.

The Telemann Wind Concerto Series Concludes (Maybe) 10 Dec 2012

You simply cannot go wrong with this one. So far, unfortunately, Amazon has not seen fit to put up clips from the CD but maybe that will happen soon as I see it has been done for the earlier issues in this series. Then you will be able to hear what I'm so positive about.
