Telemann - Viola di Gamba – Lorenz Duftschmid, Armonico Tributo Austria

 


 

 

 

 

Review:

Throughout his life, from his very beginnings right up to the end, Telemann wrote for the basse de viole (as the French called it) and especially in chamber music. Of course, the viola da gamba also plays an important role in works intended for larger formations, such as concertos and orchestral suites, church cantatas and, lastly, oratorios. According to the custom of the time, Telemann also used the viol in funeral cantatas. Furthermore, he wrote for it as a solo instrument: for example, the Sonata in D major, TWV 40:1, recorded here, or sonatas for two viols or for viol Lorenz Duftschmid and basso continuo. The present recording brings together various works with solo viol, selected from different periods of the master's output. Here one will find a double concerto for recorder, viol, strings and continuo, two solos with basso continuo, a sonata for solo viol and two quartets. Brit Reipsch, Telemann Zentrum Magdeburg, from the liner notes Telemann and the Viola di Gamba. Lorenz Duftschmid is one of the most celebrated gambists of our time. Here he has selected a group that highlights some of the most original and beautiful compositions of Telemann's compositions for the viola da gamba: a double concerto for recorder, viol, strings and continuo, two solos with basso continuo, a sonata for solo viol and two quartets. Lorenz Duftschmid is accompanied by an allstar Armonico Tributo Austria including Gunar Letzbor, Alfredo Bernardini, Eduardo Egëz, Guido Morini...
