Rebel performs Georg Philipp Telemann: Double Concerti


When Telemann began writing concertos, he already had a solid foundation as a skillful violinist, and among the concertos recorded here are the two double violin concertos in G major. No less a musician than J.S. Bach, then Kapellmeister in Weimar, made a copy of one of them. The concerto for violin and trumpet is the most Italianate of the concertos presented here, and the e minor concerto for recorder and traverso is one of Telemann’s best known concertos. The recordings are by the superb baroque ensemble, Rebel, under the leadership of Jörg-Michael Schwarz. This CD is the latest in a series Rebel has made for Bridge, including the recent, Vivaldi: Venetian Dreams (including the complete op. 10 concertos) BRIDGE 9377
