Four world premiere recordings of little-known cantatas and chamber music by Telemann, brilliantly played by experts in the field of early music. "Soprano Dorothee Mields sings like an angel, tenor Benoit Haller's voice is warm and agile and melodious, the instrumental soloists are all world class, and their ensemble colleagues are equally informed technically and in sync musically. And the sound is a perfect balance of intimate setting and room resonance that allows the uninhibited natural timbres of voices and instruments to be heard. And to all of this, we add the benefit of some terrific Telemann works that few listeners will have heard-and that even experienced Baroque fans will not immediately recognize as coming from this composer."
