Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Within the "Early Music" movement - the "Historically Informed Performance" movement, if you prefer - the burden of proof has always fallen on the players of original instruments to demonstrate musicality equal to or better than what one hears from modern instruments. That was certainly more true in 1993, when this CD was produced, than it is today, when standards have risen. Unfortunately, the first composition on this recording -- Telemann's Concerto in D major -- doesn't make much of a case for original instrumentation; the ensemble seems inchoate and jerky in ensemble, and the three horns simply fail to sound very musical at all.

If all four pieces on the CD had been as ineffectual as the first - either as performance or as composition - I would have tossed it in the rear of the 'forget-about-it" cabinet. But, wonder of wonders, the same horns perform splendidly, and the whole ensemble triumphs, on the longer and more interesting "Alster Ouverture". In fact, this 28-minute musical spectacle is well worth the price of the CD; it's a far more idiomatic and coherent performance than the recording of the same score on modern instruments on the CD "Four Horns" that I reviewed recently. Likewise, the "Grillen-Symphonie" and the "La Bouffonne Suite" are craftily played and entertaining. And this music, make no mistake, is Entertainment pure and simple; if you're not smiling, the interpretation isn't working. So... one star off for the clunker first track, five-plus for the rest.

The Grillen-Symphonie (Cricket Symphony) is a clever showpiece, evidence of Telemann's musical daring. Just for fun, listen to it as if it were a late 20th C work, in which the 'inelegant' sounds, shocking chords, and frenzied rhythms were to be taken entirely seriously.

Format: Audio CD
Clear sound, precision, excellent soloists, flat and boring strings - that about sums it all up. Simon Standage and his orchestra succeed both with the whimsical, somewhat folk-like "cricket symphony" and the opening concerto for three horns and strings: the first movement of the latter, played not too fast but at a more moderate pace, positively swings! I love this, for the horns are wonderful, too. "La Bouffonne", one of the composer's many delightful suites for string ensemble only, is played with some charm but again, those strings are a bit too clinical and stiff, especially in the overture's long opening section. In case you are seriously interested in the "famous" Alster overture - and there's reason enough, for without doubt this is one of Telemann's most original, colourful, and greatest instrumental works - by no means count on this CD. While the rendering is solid and pleasant to listen to, it's nothing more than that - all of the other recordings I know have more heart and soul put into them than this rather lifeless effort. Try the Canadian Tafelmusik orchestra instead, or - both far more adventurous - The New London Consort and Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin. -- Whenever a new Simon Standage & CM 90/Telemann CD is released, I buy it, partly for the repertoire addition and partly because I can be sure it won't be bad: I'm never completely disappointed, but never totally convinced either. Taken for himself, Standage does a fine job with Telemann, but a truly worthy successor to Trevor Pinnock and The English Concert, sorry, he is not.
