Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) paid particular attention to the field of chamber music without bass. Intended for the amateur or student, these pieces represent genuine examples of baroque music displaying an original devotion to music the effect of which can still be felt today.

The “Twelve Fantasias for Violin without Bass”, 1735, formally display a cyclic construction with numerous variants. Elements of the sonata, the concerto and the suite are taken up and expertly contrasted with one another. Characteristic is the alternation of manifold musical ideas. The richly developed part writing ensures full use of the playing possibilities of the instrument.

    This glorious music is fun to play and really sounds great on my violin! At times I think wow I can't wait to hear the accompaniment, then I realize its solo.....well worth it! I am an older amateur player who loves Bach, Teleman, Vivaldi, etc.; a compulsive reader...

    . I feel lucky to have found this music.

The pieces are...

    complex and difficult enough to be interesting, but short enough to be grasped by advancing students. In many instances, they are a good alternative to, or preparation for, solo Bach.

This is also a beautiful edition on very nice paper. A real...
