G. Ph. Telemann: The 12 Fantasias for viola da gamba solo

What would rank as of the greatest possible adventures for a gambist? To approach Telemann’s 12 Fantasies which, having long lain dormant, were recently rediscovered. This is music which paints pictures, is sometimes melancholy and longing, sometimes wild, and often humourous – an inexhaustible wellspring of ideas, moods, sounds and colours.

Program 1: “Telemann’s Fantasias- sounds, pictures, dreams” (viola da gamba solo with texts and poems by Telemann)
Program 2: “… that pleases ear and heart.” Telemmann’s Fantasias for viola da gamba and two duos by C. Fr. Abel from the Ledendecker Collection for viola da gamba and cello. (viola da gamba & baroque cello)
Program 3: “… „… gieb jedem Instrument das was es leyden kan“ Chamber music by Telemann and his contemporaries + one solo fantasy. Program with the Ensemble La Tirata
