This is one of the best recodings ever with this duo: AAM & Sir Christopher Hogwood. The sound quality of this recording is superb. The repertoire is magnificently selected for this group of concertos, including some less usual ones, as the Concerto Polonois. Hogwood and AAM exhibit a very precise and most melodic reading, with perfect tempi, according to the main features of the orchestra, besides the use of epoch instruments. The selection is so good that it’s hard to choose a preferred or a major piece. Known as a tremendously prolific composer, Georg Phillip Telemann paid the price for putting J. S. Bach on lower platforms at their times: after his death, Telemann became regarded as a “minor composer”. But nothing as giving time time. Here, we can hear some of the best Telemann in a very common baroque form: the double concerto. Strongly recommended.

Klaas Bolt (March 6, 1927 in Appingedam – April 11, 1990 in Haarlem) was a Dutch organist and improviser. He taught improvisation at the Sweelinck Conservatory (named for Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, a Dutch organist and composer of the Renaissance) in Amsterdam, where Masaaki Suzuki was among his students. Bolt was a proponent of the use of slow tempi when playing hymns. He played many hymns at his weekly evening hymn sings, which drew substantial audiences. He would typically improvise the hymn introductions at these events.

Stunning, audiophile sound – why do DGG Archiv recordings sound 3 steps better than official DGG recordings?
Although the number of orchestras which specialize in early music has grown tremendously over the last quarter century, Reinhard Goebel and MAK continue to remain a notch above all the rest, as this Telemann record shows.
