Georg Philipp Telemann: The Grand Concertos For Mixed Instruments, Vol. 1
Following its dazzling, standard-setting eight-disc complete recording of Telemann's wind concerti, La Stagione here embarks on a new four-disc series dedicated to the same composer's concertos for mixed ensembles, taking us to the very heart of his oeuvre. Like Bach in his Brandenburg Concertos, concertizing by instrumental formations against the backdrop of an accompanying string orchestra evidently most greatly stirred Telemann's compositional imagination. It is with these works that the term “mixed style” unfolds in all its colorful glory.
