Telemann's continually inventive combination of French, Italian German and Polish (yes, Polish) styles never cease to place him at the creative end of the baroque continuum, and all are in evidence here. The man's inherent understanding of the right colors for woodwinds in particular could lead one to assume he invented most of the instruments (and he did play most of them well.) Telemann will rarely have the searching profundity of a Bach, but that's not why you listen to him. You wait for that really clever turn of musical phrase that starts to lift the corners of your mouth into a smile, and you know if they tried to relegate this to the status of mere elevator music the elevators would probably be snickering too much to get to the right floors. The Chandos baroque players are a fine group, and pull this off with charateristic dispatch. The recording dates from 1986. The sound is nonetheless very good.
