Telemann - Tafelmusik vol. 1 (2002)

Telemann

Florilegium

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) the son of a clergyman, was self-taught in music and became the most prolific composer of his time. As a child he had a rare gift for music, but it was taken for granted that he would follow his father and turn to the church for his livelihood. At that time the musical profession was still held by many scholars and citizens to be inferior and disreputable. Despite all his mothers efforts to dissuade him - popular legend has it that she even confiscated his music and instruments - this persecution only led to a secret rebellion as he describes in his first autobiography of 1718: "My fire burned far too brightly, and lighted my way into the path of innocent disobedience, so that I spent many a night with pen in hand because I was forbidden it by day, and passed many an hour in lonely places with borrowed instruments." Whilst at the gymnasium in Hildesheim in his late teens, Telemann understood the necessity to play and understand the instruments he was to compose for. In addition to his considerable ability on the violin, recorder and harpsichord, he took up the oboe, transverse flute, viola da gamba, double bass, trombone and many others.

Florilegium

Regular performances in some of the world’s most prestigious venues have confirmed Florilegium’s status as one of Britain’s most outstanding period instrument ensembles. Since their formation in 1991 they have established a reputation for stylish and exciting interpretations, from intimate chamber works to large-scale orchestral and choral repertoire.

Concert venues include Sydney Opera House, Esplanade (Singapore), Teatro Colon (Buenos Aires), Wigmore Hall and Royal Festival Hall (London), Concertgebouw (Amsterdam),Konzerthaus (Vienna), Beethoven-Haus (Bonn), Handel-Haus (Halle) and Frick Collection (New York). The numerous residencies Florilegium have held over the years include being the first period instrument Ensemble-in-Residence at London’s Wigmore Hall. This Residency was for three seasons and involved the group performing several series of concerts each year and becoming actively involved in the Hall’s education work. Since September 2008 they have been Ensemble in Association at the Royal College of Music in London, where they are responsible for coaching 18th century baroque chamber music. Their over twenty recordings for Channel Classics have been awarded many prizes including a Gramophone Award nomination, Editor’s Choice from Gramophone, Diapasons d’Or and Chocs de la Musique. Florilegium’s cd of Telemann’s Paris Quartets Vol 2 received the Classical Internet Award from Classicstoday.com. The Bach Cantatas disc with Johannette Zomer was awarded a 2008 Edison Award, Dutch music’s most prestigious prize. The second volume of Baroque Music from Bolivian Missions was nominated for a 2008 bbc Music Magazine award, and bbc Music Magazine selected volume 3 as Disc of the Month for April 2010. A disc of music by Pergolesi was released in May 2010 and was bbc Music Magazine’s cd choice in the vocal category in July 2010. Future recordings include Florilegium’s arrangements of Bach’s Organ Trio Sonatas, and a recording of Couperin’s Les Nations.

Florilegium

    Deurner Dagblad

hoogste genietbare elegante kamermuziek met groot gevoel voor balans en intimiteit

    Brabants Dagblad

Een uitzonderlijkheid in de barokmuziek: een blokfluitduel met twee fluiten. Nog uitzonderlijker is dat de blokfluit daarin de hoofdrol speelt. En het alleruitzonderlijkste hier de perfecte uitvoering van Florilegium en Walter van Hauwe als blokfluitsolist.

    Diapason

panorama impressionnants .... Il y a tout au long une bonne humeur, une sant et des raffinements qui servent idealisement les jeux de timbre imagins de Telemann.....

    Classica

une disque d clectisme suscite de passion.....On le laissera donc bercer par lOuverture, le Trio, la conclusion et les deux Quators sans quaucune lassitude ne sinstalle.

    Le Monde

fraai spel van Walter van Hauwe, die het tegen twee dwarsfluiten opneemt () () het is een voortdurend plezier naar dit Brits ensemble te luisteren () Cette musique (...) s'coute avec une sorte de gourmandise laquelle concourt l'interprtation soigne et fine de l'Ensemble Florilegium (...).

    Toccata

Die CDs vereinen auf glckliche Weise artifizielle Raffinese und Natrlichkeit des Ausdrucks, die das Ensemble Florilegium seit jeher auszeichnen.

    Gramophone

Florilegium dont put a foot wrong in their decisions about tempo, articulation, phrasing and dynamics. Nor do they follow others in this field and spoil ensemble with a dominating keyboard continuo. Instead, its role is what it ought to be a discreet yet eloquent guiding force. They dont ignore that elusive quality called content. () () Musically an outstanding disc.: Editors Choice

    International Record Review

Florilegium know exactly what they are doing with Telemann and this new recording is a worthy successor to their wild but wonderfull dbut disc of chamber concertos (CCS 5091) and their more considerd readings of the Paris Quartets (CCS 13598) () Florilegium are naturally elegant and dont fall over themselves trying to say everything there is to be said about the music. Full of warmth and humanity, these performances are sure to please.
