TELEMANN MUSIC FOR FLUTE (Brilliant Classics 2016)






Telemann wrote so much and so well for the flute with the understanding of one who knew the instrument from the inside. 'How my heart beats,' he wrote, 'when I see the walls and corners of the room covered with musical instruments. Excellent instrumentalists have made me want to improve my performance on my instruments. I would have done so if an inner fire had spurred me beyond the keyboard, the violin and the flute, to learn the oboe, the chalumeau, the viola da gamba, or indeed the double bass and the bass trombone.'

In line with their earlier work on Vivaldi for Brilliant Classics (BC95078), Hanspeter Oggier and the Ensemble Fratres have now chosen to address the delectable feast of Telemann's wonderfully joyous music. Meticulous in his work, alert and inventive, Telemann was a great colourist whose coherence and open mindedness enabled him to address the widest audience.

VIVALDI PAN FLUTE CONCERTOS (Brilliant Classics 2015)






This recording is a collection of some of the finest virtuoso pieces which Vivaldi has written for the flute. Prominent among them are two masterpieces of figurative music from the Italian master: La notte, which on the one hand evokes the agony of a restless night, populated by ghosts, and on the other hand the soothing effect of deep sleep, and Il gardellino, in which the swirling flute mimics the cheerful song of the goldfinch.

Two concertos (RV 108 and 435), built around the tripartite structure favoured by Vivaldi (fast movement - slow movement - fast movement), complete this beautiful panorama. Moreover, the disc contains two concertos for strings from L'estro Armonico (RV 522 and 565) and the Sinfonia al Santo Sepolcro, in which chromatic writing and harmonic instability poignantly refer to the sufferings of Christ. As the Sinfonia culminates in an extract from Nisi Dominus, the flute soloist replaces the alto voice and develops a delicate and moving melody over a dotted ostinato pattern.
