That a harpsichord can be so sensual, bursting with life, and even humorous as in Anke Dennert's GENUIN solo debut (following two ensemble productions) is certainly a rarity - even given that the times when these instruments were disparagingly referred to as dry-as-dust egg slicers belong to the distant past... Anke Dennert plays music by the venerable Georg Philipp Telemann, who - as we learn with pleasure upon listening to this recording - was in reality not as venerable as all that; with an astonishing wealth of nuances, the harpsichordist offers a splendid rendition of the Hamburg master's Polish, pastoral, Latin, and above all sumptuous delicacies on her one-of-a-kind, 300-year-old instrument. A discovery for connoisseurs and lovers of Baroque music!
