Telemann: Music for Flute and Harpsichord - Rampal/Veyron-Lacroix
KHCD-2010-038FL (STEREO) - Telemann: Sonatas in f minor & b minor for Flute and Continuo/Trio Sonata in B-flat for Flute and Harpsichord/Concerto No. 1 in D for Flute and Harpsichord - Jean-Pierre Rampal, flute/Robert Veyron-Lacroix, harpsichord - The four compositions on this CD are, in the Baroque tradition, widely different in style and effect. They range from the most intimate entertainment music to concerto-like textures. And , as is the case with many Baroque pieces, the scoring allows for any combination of instruments to play. In the instance of the Sonata in f minor, it was originally written for bassoon. The Sonata in b minor was part of a subscription series published in 1733; GF Handel was one of the subscribers, and actually borrowed the two outer movements and used them in his Organ Concerto in d minor. The Trio Sonata allows for the solo keyboard to incorporate the cello/gamba continuo part into the setting. And finally, the Concerto actually is an original Concerto for flute and harpsichord, but offering the possibility of many combinations of other instruments; this recording offers the original setting. Jean-Pierre Rampal and Robert Veyron-Lacroix join to provide an intimate, exciting performance. An excellent- condition Nonesuch LP was the source for this delightful disc. Cover, tray, and disc art are included in the download.
