If you're up for nearly 160 minutes of quintessentially charming German baroque chamber music, here is the set for you. The Camerata Köln lucidly performs Telemann's six concertos and suites with as much style and invention as we're ever likely to hear. These players clearly understand how Telemann's inventive variety of dance forms, sudden chromatic harmonic shifts, and parallel note sequences reflect his awareness of national styles outside of Germany. They also tactfully embrace the improvisatory freedom Telemann encouraged. If you've enjoyed Telemann's more well known (and recorded) Paris Quartets or Methodic Sonatas, or his famous Tafelmusik series, you'll likely enjoy these debut performances as well.

Telemann had made reference to writing twenty operas during his four years in Leipzig, but sadly the scores have been lost and very few librettos and arias are extant. Michael Maul has proven that some 40 arias discovered at the Frankfurt University Library were from Telemann’s Germanicus and its modern premiere took place with Gotthold Schwarz and the Saxon Baroque Orchestra. Germanicus is a tale of love, lust and political intrigue based very loosely on events during the first-century occupation of Teutonic territory by the Romans. Since only arias survive, for recitatives Maul substituted a tongue-in-cheek narrative wittily delivered by actor Dieter Bellmann.

Rare is the month at present when Brilliant Classics does not release a new recording which delves further into the protean output of that most prolific of composers, Georg Philipp Telemann. In the year that he is remembered with particular enthusiasm, 250 years after his death in Hamburg, the breadth of his achievement can be appreciated more than ever, not least thanks to recent recordings of the recorder sonatas (BC95247), concertos and suites for flute (BC95147), double concertos with recorder (BC95249), oboe concertos (BC95379), and a reissue of the classic account of the complete Tafelmusik (BC92177), which is the modern counterpart to the Bruggen recording that brought Telemann’s name to so many listeners half a century ago.

This is perhaps the most "spirited" performance of Telemann's early chamber music that I've ever heard, and to my ears it sounds just right. It's the sort of performance when, even if you "know you know" the specific piece of music, you feel like you've never heard it before. In reality, seven of the nine sonatas on this CD are new to me. That's not so surprising when you consider that Telemann composed literally scores of scores!

A new album featuring a world premiere recording of a late work by Telemann (1681-1767). A Reformation oratorio composed to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Peace of Augsburg in 1555 discovered by Reinhard Goebel, conductor and founder of Concerto Köln. An excellent recording with the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Leading soloists, including Sony Classical exclusive artists Regula Mühlemann (soprano) and Benjamin Appl (baritone) Conductor Reinhard Goebel went off in search of forgotten treasures to mark the anniversary year of Georg Philipp Telemann’s death and unearthed something special.

The opera Miriways met with enthusiastic responses when it was rediscovered after 284 years in 2012 at the Bruckner Festival in Linz and in the stage production under Michi Gaigg at the Magdeburg Theatre. “The score is a delight, revealing the composer at his most colourfully inventive…The performance pulsates with energy from start to finish…The cast, by and large, is strong…Prince Sophi is a soprano role sung with agility and tonal clarity by Ulrike Hofbauer. She provides a consistently rewarding presence…Miriways is, in a word, entertaining.” (International Record Review)

This live recording of Georg Philipp Telemann's "Flavius 'Bertaridus" is a rarity: The performance at the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music has been hailed by critics and frenetic. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung described this world premiere recording under the direction of Alessandro di Marchi - one of the leading specialists in historical performance practice. As "a milestone in German music history," "Not a single scene, no aria want to miss it," the Neue Zürcher Zeitung writes to di Marchis spectacular interpretation with orchestra and chorus of the Academia Montis Regalis. The opera is entirely filled with wonderful singers like Maite Beaumont, Ann-Beth Solvang and Nina Bernstein.
