About this album

CHAMBER Music BY GEORG PHILIPP TELEMANN Telemann was a composer of astonishing versatility, and nowhere is this quality more evident than in his trios and quartets for wind and string instruments. He composed in both the Italian and French styles, sometimes very distinctly in one or the other, and at other times blending them together. He was influenced by such diverse elements as the galant style and ‘barbaric’ Polish folk music. The results are truly impressive, for Telemann clearly loved and understood these various styles and used them as sources of inspiration rather than strict guidelines for moulding musical content.
CORELLISIERENDE SONATA IN F MAJOR This work is the first in a group of six sonatas in which Telemann pays tribute to the great Italian master, Arcangello Corelli. The work contains several of the hallmarks of Corelli’s style such as walking basses, series of suspensions, and energetic contrapuntal writing. However the work is undeniably Telemann’s own as exemplified in the air of sweetness of the first movement, and the ‘jazzy’ contrary motion of the two violins over a pedal point at the close of the final movement.

Contributing considerably to the success of this collection is the zest, energy, and stylish spirit of the seven players who make up this group-virtuosic and knowledgeable, they also sound as if they are having tremendous fun with these pieces. (...)

FonoForum

(...) Diese Prager Interpretation rekonstruiert das Klangerlebnis - und wohl auch den Moment der (be-) Rührung. (...) Mehr als nur ein Zeitdokument.

Harmonia

(...) but the disc is still a worthwhile acquisition for the prosperous Telemanniac.

Monde de la Musique

(...) La partition est très convaincante dans l'interprétation de l'Ensemble Disman. (...)

Entr'acte

(...) Een cd om van te houden (...)

BBC Magazine

(...) the performances have a vivid and splendidly theatrical feel which cannot fail to move the listener.

Neue Bürcher Zeitung (Switserland)

(...) ...löst die sehr lebendige dargestellte Musik als Zeitdokument des Holocaust von neuen Betroffenheit aus.
