Telemann: Paris Quartets

Solomon, A. (1999) Telemann: Paris Quartets. [Audio]

Abstract

Georg Philipp Telemann's Paris Quartets and solo instrumental works performed by period instrument ensemble Florilegium: Sonata Seconda in G Minor; Fantasie No. 5 in A Major for violin; Sonata Prima in A Major; Fantasie No. 7 in D major for flute; Concerto Secondo in D Major; Fantasie No. 8 in G Minor for harpsichord; Premiere Suite in E minor. Music was always an important part of Telemann’s upbringing so that by the time he enrolled at Leipzig University (1701) to study Law (to please his mother) he was a fully trained musician. Whilst there he founded the Collegium Musicum which gave regular public concerts (later directed by Bach), and spent time in Poland (1705), Eisenach (1708), Frankfurt (1712) and eventually settled in Hamburg (1721) as the Kantor of the Johanneum and Musical Director of the five main churches in Hamburg.
