Telemann: Trumpet & Horn Concertos / Kuijken, Madeuf, Madeuf, La Petite Bande
Jean-Francois Madeuf and Pierre-Yves Madeuf are two leading experts of historically informed performance practice as it pertains to wind instruments. Performing on natural horn or natural trumpet, the two can be found in many of Europe’s foremost early music ensembles. For this new release, the Madeufs have teamed up with Sigiswald Kuijken’s magnificent La Petite Bande to present a set of Georg Philipp Telemann’s concertos in the historical performance style for which they are known: utilizing natural trumpets and horns, and bringing the pieces back to their original purpose of being performed as chamber works. Despite the identical key of D major, the pieces recorded here contain substantial differences between them, and Telemann’s highly varied instrumental scoring shows his continuing search for innovation- quite a different picture than what is usually represented.
