Following our spectacular, standard-setting complete recording of Telemann's wind concertos on eight albums, we are now concluding our second significant Telemann edition with its Vol. 6, which features his concertos for mixed ensemble and transports us to the very heart (and soul) of his oeuvre. Here his oft-cited "mixed style" is fully revealed in all its colorfulness. wrote, "Performed with the greatest variety and magic. A new Telemann series promising to bring superb musical high points and true moments of joy." And the sixth release again offers surprises and shows "that Telemann's oeuvre is too multifaceted, too stylistically diversified, too rich in various textures, and too complex in its blend of various generic, stylistic, and formal traditions for one to be able to sum up his concerto thought in a couple of short statements. The present complete recording documents for the first time the absolutely inexhaustible wealth of his powers of design in the instrumental concerto in all the transmitted playing styles and facets; if this recording is able to serve not only as an introduction but also and more so as a source of sensuous attraction to the beauties of this absolutely unique sound world, then its highest goal will have been met" (Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Hirschmann, our booklet author).
