Gaku Nakagawa, Harpsichord
Telemann was among the most admired and prolific of composers and his compositions encompass virtually all genres and instrumentations known in his lifetime. The Six Ouvertures, strangely neglected for many years, reveal his inventive and imaginative writing for solo harpsichord. They contain elements that suggest an amalgam of French and Italianate influences, whether ouverture-suite or three-movement concerto or sonata. Also evident, in the central movements, is Telemann’s preference for Polish folk music,of whose ‘true barbaric beauty’ he was an ardent admirer.
