CMDH crowdfunding: Telemann CD
Seeded by cmdh on 8 Nov 2018
COLLEGIUM MUSICUM Den Haag has a new CD in the making, with a special selection of chamber music by Telemann! Help make this release a reality by donating! With 6 musicians, CMDH has just recorded a special selection of Telemann's trios and quartets, and we look forward to the release by Outhere Music in 2019! No 18th century composer was so adept at so many musical styles as Georg Philipp Telemann. Telemann's versatility and inventiveness kept his musical style avant-garde during his entire life. He was not only praised by his contemporaries but was highly respected by the next generation: his fame was immense. Over the last 15 years of playing together, we were struck again and again by Telemann’s ability to expertly compose in such a variety of styles. That’s why we chose to make this CD, to show Telemann the chameleon, the breadth of his musical palette, and to make the listener wonder: is this truly a collection of music by just one composer, not six?
