Georg Philipp Telemann : Trios for oboe, bass and treble viol and harpsichord, performed by Paul Dombrecht, Wieland Kuijken and Robert Kohnen
Just like most German composers of his time, Telemann was very well acquainted with the stylistic developments in the other European countries, Italy and France in particular, and in his own compositions he assimilated the various national styles: the Lully Ouverture, the stylized French dances and the Italian trio sonata and concerto. Telemann’s contribution to these forms and genres was fruitful, of a high technic level and highly inventive level. The Telemann catalogue contains a mass of chamber music works. His oeuvre is so diverse, partly because he was always engaged in all kinds of activities. he wrote music for the church, for the court, for the city and for the opera, in all existing genres. The trios with concertante Harpsichord on this recording come from his collection of 'Essercizi Musici. Beside Robert Kohnen on the solo harpsichord, the second harpsichord that performs the basso continuo is played by Michèle Devérité, and the viola da Gamba that playes the basso continuo whilst Wieland Kuijken is performing his solos is Kaori Uemura. The star of the recording is of course also Paul Dombrecht, one of the undisputed pioneers of the baroque oboe performance practice.

Il violoncello di Corelli leads us to the origins of the solo cello literature – although one should actually use the term violone. In fact, the cello, as we know it today in its standard form, had many different sizes before its current proportions became generally established. Some instruments were larger, and the smaller ones were referred to by the diminutive form of the term violone –...
Brahms composed only a small number of original works for piano four hands, but arranged almost all of his chamber music and orchestral works for this instrumentation. He played most of them immediately after their completion with Clara Schumann and greatly appreciated her opinion. In his Hungarian Dances Brahms brilliantly transformed original Hungarian melodies and rhythms into multi-coloured...
In 1959, two composers wrote nonets: Nino Rota’s melodic Nonetto, on which he would continue to work for almost 20 years, and Bohuslav Martinů’s farewell chamber music piece, a nonet, which he composed as a last piece to satisfy his longing for his homeland. Eisler did not compose his nonet in his native country either, but arrived in Mexico in 1941 as a refugee from the Nazis. There he wrote...
