This is the most lucid recorder tone I've ever heard. Dan Laurin is also a master technician, throwing off liquid lines at rapid speed with total accuracy. His playing literally sparkles, soars and occasionally even explodes with virtuosic lines that seem far beyond normal ability. I've heard recordings where the recorder is loose with pitch or has a weak tone. None of that happens here. This is a quantum leap in soloing technique and brilliant sound. This CD would be worth it alone just to hear his crystalline tone, awesome technique and just outright extraordinary playing.
The group that plays behind Laurin, Arte dei Suonatori are great. They have a swing and articulation that is excellent. The balance of sound couldn't be bettered. It is clear without a hint of distortion anywhere. It sounds as though a new generation of audio has been revealed and honestly I can't think of a recording that has this level of clarity and precision. We live in an age where if such things are readily possible, it must truly be a new renaissance. Engineers, take note. Study this recording. This is a model of superior sound and production.
Telemann's music on this CD, the often recorded Overture (Suite) in A Minor, The Concerto in F, Concerto in A Minor and Concerto in C are all ingenious works. They show Telemann's advanced understanding of how to properly use and blend different sounds while also finding various methods to cleverly create rhythmic action. This is lively, clean, articulate and highly entertaining music. It doesn't matter if you aren't a fan of Baroque music or if you aren't a fan of the recorder because the appeal of this easily would bring pleasure to anyone who appreciates the best music. Flawless. Buy it today.
