April 2008 edition

telemann-captioned-photo.jpgOur program this month (13 minutes and 57 seconds) features the rarely performed Concerto for Flauto Traverso and strings in G Major by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767). This performance by Ars Antigua directed by Jerry Fuller features baroque flute soloist Cuauhetemoc Trejo.

Telemann’s little performed, but excellent, flute concerto is in the French style with a tip of the hat to Polish music in the last movement. Unlike the typical baroque concerto in 3 movements, this concerto is in four “character” movements, which hints of the French orchestra suite with its prominent dance rhythms.

  1. Jerry — fantastic! Your group sounds better than ever. And what a wonderful way to share your music.
