Editorial Reviews

Many have yearningly awaited the continuation of this series! As already on the previous Vol. 3, Wallfisch has sought out another set of large-scope concertos in overture form. The distinguishing characteristic of these concerts en ouverture is that the violin comes into the foreground in the fast segment of the overture as well as in most of the ensuing movements, in order to concertize with the rest of the orchestra or to lead the second part of a dance soloistically.

Format: Audio CD
This series by Elizabeth Wallfisch and her different ensembles is really excellent. Telemann is too often dismissed as an amiable but inconsequential composer of mediocre Baroque wall paper. I disagree: I think that much of Telemann's music has real weight and substance under the charm and accessibility, and these discs show it off very well.

Elizabeth Wallfisch has been making very fine baroque recordings for many years now (her recently re-released Vivaldi violin sonatas are absolutely fantastic, for example Vivaldi: Six Violin Sonatas (Violin Sonatas Op. 2 No. 1-6) (Elizabeth Wallfisch/ Richard Tunnicliffe/ Malcolm Proud) (Hyperion: CDH55404)) and she brings her wonderful technique and depth of understanding to these recordings and makes something really special from them. Slower movements have genuine emotion and feeling without being overly sentimental and the quicker passages have a terrific zing. She is excellently supported by her ensemble, here L'Orfeo Barockorchester, who play with great sensitivity and suppleness and do the music proud.

Every one of this series (five at the time of writing) has been a gem and a real eye-opener for me into the quality of these concerti. The notes, it must be said, are pretty stodgy and not well translated but the music's the thing and it is excellent. I recommend all of these discs very warmly.

I own the complete set of these concerti. I love each and every one of them as my musical children as much as my biological children.They are magnificent. Do not assume that they are automatic, rote, sewing-machine note churning, or musical wallpaper. They invited repeated and serious listening. Telemann received a raw deal in musical history Most unlucky composer was he.

If Bach is considered the greatest keyboard and church music composer of the Baroque, Handel of opera and Vivaldi of concerti, then Telemann must be regarded as highly for his many suites for various orchestral combinations with and without solo instruments.

I have been buying all the CD's in this series, and have enjoyed Telemann's works which in most cases are all new acquaintances. Telemann was no hack, so in spite writing several hundred suites and symphonies, he always managed to come up with fresh ideas and to develop his musical style as tastes changed during his long lifetime.

L'Orfeo and Ms. Wallfisch give polished and tasteful renderings of the works for violin and orchestra. A little TOO polished in my opinion, since listening to their recordings is like passing the fine wood table in one's dining room. It's there, but you hardly notice it after a while. This is not a problem with Telemann's music, since it is varied and interesting as I wrote above, so this impression must be due to the performances.

One would wish that L'Orfeo and Ms. Wallfisch would play less "prettily" and with more verve and grit, as so many period ensembles do. Ms. Wallfisch is no Biondi or Carmignola, nor even a Podger or Manze. And L'Orfeo reflects her slightly dry, academic approach, though one likes to think that given a more temperamental leader, they, too, could have the impact of other baroque orchestras, like, e.g., Concerto Koln.

Don't let the missing star detract you from buying this CD, however. I write as a trained classical musician, who has been following the period music movement for the last 30 years. Hence my criteria for five stars are probably stricter than those of others.
