5.0 out of 5 stars Telemann: Les Plaisirs August 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Telemann: Les Plaisirs is a harmonia mundi recording from 1997 featuring the orchestra of the age of enlightenment under the direction of monnica hugget. We also get the pleasure of listening to Sarah Cunningham on the viola da gamba and marion verbruggen on the recorder. Carsten Lange has written the music notes. Also included are short biographies of the performers. Highly recommended. 5/5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Pleasures August 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This cd contains one of the best performances of Telemann's well-known A Minor Suite for recorder and strings. Sarah Cunningham is a fine recorder player, and Monica Hugget plays first violin and directs the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, who play on period instruments. The strings play with very little or no vibratto, which might sound a bit dry to some listeners, but the elegance and precision of this band will win over many others. The A Minor Concerto for recorder is also given an enjoyable performance, but the remaining pieces, a Suite in D for Viola da gamba, and a Sinfonia in F for recorder and gamba are less pleasing, mainly because the gamba playing of Marion Verbruggen is somewhat less than exciting. Her instrument is mainly effective in chamber music of a very intimate type since it has a very small voice which I find difficult to hear along with the rest of the band. Even the recorder tends to drown it out. I wonder if these two works were acutally intended for the viola d'amore (or viola) rather than the gamba ("leg viol"), since the viola has a somwhat louder voice. So, at least half of this disc is full of pleasures, but the other half is a bit disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every track is beautiful November 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't get over how beautiful this CD is, and I'm not using the word "beautiful" loosely. I love every track. My daughter-in-law was at my house recently for a day of bed rest. I left her with a stack of CDs, including this one. When I got home from work she said, without any prompting from me, "This CD is beautiful," and she said "beautiful" with feeling. I bought four more copies for Christmas presents.

It's hard to put in words why I find it so beautiful. The music is fresh, bright, delightful. It's not just beautiful, it's movingly beautiful. I like baroque music, but this sounds somewhat different from most of my baroque CDs, perhaps partly because one of the instruments is a viola da gamba.

This is a review of "Telemann: Les Plaisirs", with Marion Verbruggen, Sara Cunningham, and Monica Hugget. I have several CDs with pieces by Telemann, but this is the first one I've bought that is all Telemann. (I once had a set of phonograph records with only Telemann, but that was long, long ago.) I have several CDs with Marion Verbruggen, whom I have recently discoverd and whom I like very much. I also have several CDs with Hugget and Cunningham, and I like them too. I bought this CD mostly because I read somewhere that Verbruggen plays the recorder beautifully in track 13. I didn't know what to expect of the rest.
