Format: Audio CD
Telemann's Wassermusik (composed in 1723) is a highly enjoyable baroque masterpiece. The Harlequinade (track 6) is especially great, featuring a chorus of cellos over rollicking pizzicato violins. The Sarabande (track 2) is a sweet, beatuiful interlude after the bombastic overture. The exact meaning of the subtitles are unknown, but each movement carries a distinct flavor- and it is this abstract quality of instrumental music that Telemann so completely masters.
Goebel and the Musica Antiqua Koln bring so much to this music in skill, energy, feeling, and texture. The three recorder concertos show off the immense talents of the wind players, which is already apparent in the Water Music. Don't get me wrong- I'm not smashing recorders in the street- but I'm sure I'm not alone in my prejudice against this instrument (why are there so many Marion Verbruggen albums flooding the market?). These are fine works nonetheless, and for those of you who DO favor the instrument you'll enjoy this recording all the more. In any event, I've been finding a lot of surprises in Telemann's ouvre. It's no wonder he was so well regarded in his time. If you're having difficulty sifting through the scads of works by this composer, please give this CD a try. It is a perfect recording of a deeply pleasing work.

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681 - 1767): Overture in C major "Water Music" (or "Hamburger Ebb' und Fluth"); Concertos in B flat major, F major and A minor). Performed by Musica Antiqua Köln, directed by Reinhard Goebel. Recorded in 1984 at the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle in Hamburg-Harburg, Germany. Published in 1984 as DG Archiv 413 788-2. Total playing time: 49'10".

Telemann's "Water Music" is very different from Handel's. Published in 1723 to celebrate the centenary of the Hamburg "Admiralty" or Port Authority, it is basically a French-style suite of dances, preceded by a lengthy "Ouverture". The only number which does not fit into this scheme is no. 7, "Der stürmende Aeolus" in which the furious stormy winds which abound in the Hamburg district are allowed to rant and rave. The dance numbers are all given headings which indicate not only their particular dance rhythm but also show that Telemann intended to paint mythological pictures with them (Thetis, Neptune, the Naiads, Triton, Aeolus and Zephyr are all names from Greek mythology and have to do with the sea and the wind, so this is all very appropriate for a celebration in the port city of Hamburg). The last two numbers are a jig in which the coming and going of the tide is portrayed and a "canarie" which depicts the merry goings-on among the boatspeople.

Musica Antiqua Köln (Cologne) give a relaxed and very transparent performance of this music which I like very much, although I have to add that the version produced by Paul Dombrecht and his orchestra Il Fondamento for Vanguard Classics in 1996 (and re-released on the Belgian label Passacaille: ASIN: B000ALJ9C4) is, to my mind, even better, with slightly faster tempi and rather more emphasis on the winds.

We've loved this on vinyl for years, and wanted the convenience of CD. It was recorded digitally, and the CD recording is quite comparable to the sound of vinyl.
