Description

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…..

Press reviews

Fanfare

…) the ensemble as a whole plays superbly together, and the balance between the individuel voices is ideal. Strongly recommended.

Luister

(…) Deze opname zal zeker de goedkeuring van Telemann hebben gekregen. (…) (…) Bijzonder interessant om de musici van dit ensemble eens apart te horen. Het zijn fantasievolle vertolkers. (…) (…) Florilegium heeft naast spits spel een prachtige homogeniteit toegevoegd, waardoor de kwartetten nog meer tot hun recht komen. (Muzikale juweeltjes) (…) (…) De opname is prachtig warm en laat elk instrument perfect tot zijn recht komen. Een hele mooie cd.

Early Music Quarterly

(…) That a quartet of flute, violin, cello and harpsichord is capable of such variety of mood and timbre is a tribute to the extraordinary interpretative resourcefulness of the group.(…) (..) One of the most exciting chamber ensembles in the field. (…) (…) All together this disc falls into the ‘must have’ category.

Classica

(…) une des meilleurs formations du moment (…) (…) nous avons ici tous les ingredients rêvés en matière de vivacité, compréhension de textes et perfection technique. Quelle Flûte, quel violon!

Classic CD

(…) but if there is a more vivacious and beautifully recorded version currently available we should be told. (…) (…) Some of Telemann’s most appealing music played with blistering conviction and affection.

Strad

(…) the playing throughout is of the a very highest order (…) (…) Ashley Solomon is a brilliant flautist and Rachel Podger’s gut violin strings bring a clean, bright sound to the ensemble. She is equally superb in the technically demanding Violin Fantasie. Above all it is the case with which Florilegium performs the most demanding moments and the players absolute mastery of their instruments that make this disc very special.I recommend it without reservation.

American Record Guide

(…) Excellent renditions, played with dash and spirit (…) (…) I hope Florlilegium will complete the Paris Quartets.

Répertoire

(…) la très remarquable Rachel Podger, ces Anglais avaient démontré de profondes affinité avec la musique de Telemann plus encore un plaisir ludique de chambristes que l’on rencontre trop rarement dans le monde de la musique ancienne.
