I made a record of it with my orchestra „L’Arpa Festante“ in the 1980s. All orchestral colours which you can think of and so dramatic!
What would you like to talk about with Telemann over a glass of wine?
About his several journeys and impressions, how he could make so many musical inventions and why a mixed taste was of great importance for him. Furthermore, I would like to know more about his opera performances. Why did you use certain libretti, for example, why the „Miriways” material? Just great!
What does Telemann have that other’s do not?
Telemann has an unmistakable language, handling of effects and a very clear rhetoric … Everyone is able to understand his stories and narrations.
