The instrument produces a fascinating sound that no other provides, and the compositions are skilfully played and written by Karas.
The album is probably best regarded as one to keep and save in the bottom drawer and to play on occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Telemann at it's best., 11 Feb 2014
These three Telemann Overtures and one Concerto are full of live and vitality and superbly performed by Collegium Musicum 90. The recording quality is virtually unbeatable using a Chandos 24 bit system. Enjoy for always.
