5.0 out of 5 stars A Disc to be Treasured August 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Georg Philipp Telemann (1681 - 1767): Water Music. 1. Hamburger Ebb' und Flut [Low and High Tide at Hamburg]; 2. Violin Concerto "Die Relinge" [The Frogs]; 3. Alsterouvertüre [Alster Overture]. Performed by Pavlo Beznosiuk, violin; the New London Consort, dir. Philip Pickett. Published in 1998 by Decca L'Oiseau-Lyre. Now rereleased in Europe at budget price on Universal's Audior label. Total playing time: approx. 72 minutes.

Philip Pickett is known for his musicological research and accuracy, but also for his drastic recordings of medieval repertoire. This baroque disc reflects more the musicological side of his personality, although there are a couple of tracks here that deserve the term "drastic", especially Tr. 20, the "Concert of Frogs and Crows", which in my opinion can match Farina's "Capriccio Stravagante" and sounds at least as off-tune as much of Mozart's "Musical Joke". Tr. 17, "The Bells of Hamburg" has the harpsichord and other instruments imitating bell-ringing, too, although this is much easier on the ears. But generally, I would call this a cultured rather than a drastic recording. The "Hamburger Ebb und Flut" piece (Tr. 1 through 10) is taken at a fairly peaceful pace, with some dignified playing and no exaggerations of the musical picture-painting. I think I probably still prefer the rather more energetic version by Paul Dombrecht and his ensemble Il Fondamento on the Belgian label Passacaille (Watermusic: Handel: Suites in F G & D - Telemann: Overture in C), but Pickett is close behind, rivalling Reinhard Goebel's Musica Antiqua Cologne for sheer class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Fun! October 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This disc is excellent all around, and fun too! The "Water Music" is smooth and soothing, not fireworky like Handel's. "The Frogs" is fun and very modern sounding at times, especially when evoking the frog croaks. The cover is beautiful and the sound is great. What's not to like?
