Editorial Reviews

Georg Philipp Telemann published his 12 Fantasies for solo violin in Hamburg
in 1735. These pieces place him firmly in the tradition, established in the late
17th century, of such renowned violinists as Carlo Ambrogio Lonati, Francesco
Geminiani, Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, and Johann Paul von Westhoff,
culminating with J.S. Bach, who published his famous cycles of sonatas and
partitas for solo violin around 1720. The focal point of such works was to
produce rich contrapuntal harmonies on a solo melody instrument in music
that went beyond pure practice pieces and captivated its listeners. Telemann
succeeded in this by avoiding virtuosic acrobatics by the instrumentalist and
instead allowing the catchy tunes and dance rhythms to prevail.
This recording features Ori Kam, brother of clarinetist Sharon Kam, playing
a version for solo viola in which the pieces have been transposed down by a
fifth but are otherwise unchanged. The tone of the viola, warm in the lower
register and possessing brilliance in the high notes, lends the works a new
dimension of expression in comparison to the original. Ori Kam, playing in
the Jesus-Christus Church in Berlin, draws from his instrument a sound that
transcends all constraint and lets the listener simply float away with the music.
