Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin

It has been said that Vivaldi wrote the same concerto 300 times. Could anyone possibly say that of Telemann? Not only do the examples here feature every kind of weird and wonderful instrumental combination – four trumpets, three horns, two flutes and calchedon, and even mandolin, harp and dulcimer; they also display the most amazing variety of styles, from Vivaldian exuberance to elegant Ancien Régime dances by way of learned German counterpoint. The works on this recording, with the exception of the concerto from the Tafelmusik, were probably written between approximately 1710 and 1720.

The Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin (Akamus) was founded in 1982 in Berlin. Since then, it has become one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras on period instruments and can look back on an unprecedented history of success. Since 1994, their recordings have been produced exclusively for harmonia mundi and have won all the important awards for classical recordings, including Gramophone, Edison, Choc de l’année as well as the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. In 2006, Akamus received the Telemann prize of Magdeburg and in 2014 both the Bach Medal and Echo Klassik.

"Interest in instruments of the lute family aside from the ‘standard’ Baroque lute has increased in recent years. In the Concerto TWV 53: h1 recorded here, the bass stave of the solo trio is marked for ‘calchedon’, the name of a specific type of long-necked lute, also known as ‘galizona’. Telemann used the calcedono (or calcedon, or calchedon) in more than 400 works, primarily to play the bass line and only very rarely as a chordal instrument. The compass and style of writing lead to the conclusion that he can only have intended the large six-course, long-necked galizona, tuned a-e-c-G-D-C. For this recording we used a copy of an instrument made by Thomas Edlinger in Prague in 1718 or 1728." Andreas Schlegel
