After hearing the last disc with Telemann String Concertos I was thrilled when I discovered that there would be a second cd with music by Telemann. The group has some new members. The most obvious change is in the continuo with a new cellist and harpsichordist to replace the outstanding Markus Möllenbeck and Christian Rieger. The former star of the group, 1st violinist Florian Deuter is also replaced here by Stephan Schardt AND surprisingly the Maestro himself, Reinhard Goebel who after an arm injury actually has re-learned to play the violin by holding it on the right shoulder instead of the left!
I was actually a bit worried after hearing the latest cd "Bachiana" with the new ensemble. When being a fan of MAK you get used to absolute perfection in every sense of the word. Precision and intonation is always impeccable. I would never have reacted or been disturbed if I'd heard the small imperfections in the cd from basically any other ensemble but with MAK you notice! Sometimes the harpsichord is a bit after the beats and Schardt's playing isn't always convincing.
Anyway, the new disc completely wipes all doubts away. This recording is a blast!! The sound have never been so big, so symphonic and powerful. The characters of each piece are also very convincing. The continuo playing is absolute top class. So is the solo playing from the violins. There are some amazing pieces to discover here like the concertos for four violins and the suite in D with gamba played by Jaap ter Linden. Some people have a problem to accept and enjoy the, in their ears, extreme approach that MAK has developed during the last ten years. I think the reason is that this way of playing is still unique. Like when "we" started to play baroque instruments and a lot of people were sceptical about it.

Telemann's music has been enjoying an amazing resurgence, reminiscent of the renaissance Vivaldi underwent some decades ago. This disc is sure to secure the reputation of a composer much maligned in many musicological circles. The attractive collection of works includes at least three real gems, the Overture TWV55:D6 for viola da gamba and orchestra, the Concerto for four violins and orchestra TWV54:A1 and the Concerto 'Die Relinge' TWV 51:A4 (a recent discovery but recorded elsewhere on at least one other occasion). There are also three concertos for four solo violins, played with rhythmic elan and radiant string sound. There is only one weak work, the Symphony TWVAnh50:1.
Musica Antiqua Köln does a superb job, injecting this music with consistent life, energy and elegance and this disc is warmly recommended.

... than Reinhard Goebel's 'Musica Antiqua Köln', more stylishly and excitingly, with better intonation and tighter ensemble! I'm fairly sure even Telemann himself rarely had better musicians to conduct. Yet Goebel's brilliance seems to provoke a vendetta among reactionaries against historically informed performance practice, who would rather hear Saint Muffins in the Cow Pasture bellow on modern symphonic instruments at half tempo. Ignore such nonsense! The whole point of such music is entertainment. If you don't like fun, go away!

And where is the fun if not in sheer virtuosity for its own sake? The main course on this CD of 'Table Music' is the 24-minute "Suite in D major for Viola da Gamba, Strings, and Basso Continuo." The virtuoso gambist is Jaap ter Linden, a guest artist with MAK. Pitting the soft timbre of the gamba in concertata with a vigorous chamber orchestra of violins and cellos calls for some compositional virtuosity, also; essentially, the gamba is exposed in cadenza-like passages supported only by the continuo players, and the full ensemble then responds in dance. The contrast works beautifully. It's a little like seeing a gorgeous purple iris amid a field of yellow poppies.

The five small concertos for multiple violins are all in major keys, a sure sign that Telemann intended them for pure musical mirth, but there are surprises to be heard, outbursts of wry chromaticism and piquant dissonance. MAK is famed for its daredevil tempos, but these pieces are 'moderato' in every way. Reinhard Goebel suggests that Telemann wrote them as instructional models of the Italian manner for members of German court ensembles.

Certainly not - but that's what they almost sound like to me. I think there can be no arguing that on their newer discs, Musica Antiqua Köln have the fullest, warmest, and most powerful ensemble sound of today - which doesn't necessarily make them the absolute "period kings", it all depending rather on the kind of approach most valid to you. This disc, now, will hardly ever become a Telemann favourite of mine. I remember being fairly disappointed with the selection of works - I always waited for Goebel to record Telemann's overture suites for solo violin and strings, a project now thankfully undertaken by Elizabeth Wallfisch - for again he chose to unearth some of the composer's most obscure creations, like three concertos for 4 violins solo (not really my cup) and the concluding "symphony" which is more of an interesting curiosity. As to the "Frog Concerto", Goebel obviously had to do it, and of the three or four versions now available, his rendering of the gorgeous first movement is by far the most clear-sounding and convincing. And we do have a real centerpiece too, the overture suite for viola da gamba and strings, likewise not by any means unknown (there's also a very fine recording by Camerata Köln), a towering masterpiece of the genre. Here, MAK and Jaap ter Linden deliver a thrilling - if somewhat pompous - listening experience full of the most exciting virtuosity. But alas, in trying to be different, R. Goebel occasionally lets himself be carried away, resulting in an unhealthy tendency to provoke and overdo, as evident in the suite's Courante, which is played so fast it almost becomes ludicrous. (In string concertos vol. 1, the viola concerto's Andante was the one to suffer). - If only he were able to cut back on antics like these, someday Reinhard Goebel might indeed be king.
