    The four sonatas in this edition have the advantage of being originally intended for the alto (treble) recorder and keyboard, and the figured bass realizations are well thought-out. However, the sonatas themselves are relatively formulaic, even for Telemann, with constant brainless repetitions of sequences. Some of the outer movements...

    are so busy with needle-deedle sixteenth-note motives that you hardly have room to do any ornamentation, be it tasteful or otherwise. Most of the sonatas lack tuneful appeal, and some of them end up sounding like scaled exercises with sparse keyboard accompaniment. Despite these deficiencies, these Telemann sonatas are well-printed, and they are a good stylistic departure from the collection of Handel sonatas that form the core of most recorder-players' solo repertoire.
