Georg Philipp Telemann (1681 – 1767), one of the most prolific composers in the history of music, was famous for the remarkable speed at which he wrote. He composed so quickly one gets the impression the notes appeared from under his pen quite naturally and spontaneously: the creative process was not onerous work for him.
The overwhelming majority of his compositions are written in the major key – in radiant, joyful colours; most of Telemann’s contemporaries also gave preference to this key. But just how carefree and spontaneous is, in fact, this joy? Telemann’s works could be described as an encyclopedia of late Baroque instrumental music, a highpoint in its philosophical interpretation. His total command of all the genre models of the age, ability to come up each time with new treatments bear testimony to Telemann’s superb skill. When writing in a particular genre he would explore all its potential, at times trying out quite unexpected combinations. A wise, philosophical viewpoint unites Telemann’s many different works, including the music in major key presented in this album.
