Moments of wonder, wistfulness and elegiac tenderness wrapped in entrancing music. Probably my CD of 2020, heart on the sleeve, hand on the heart.

It is fascinating to discover the incredible richness of Telemann’s creativity. And to marvel at the fact that he is still sometimes disparaged as a composing maniac to the ranks of Bach and Handel. This is the German Art of the Suite at its prime, and equally well performed.
