Telemann: Ouvertures pittoresques – Arte dei Suonatori

Throughout a long and extremely productive career, Georg Philipp Telemann harboured a great affection for the overture-suite, consisting of a French overture followed by a number of dances and character movements. Tempering the rigid model inherited from the French tradition with his own rich powers of invention and playfulness, he remained true to the form long after it had gone out of fashion. One variant of which he was particularly fond was the ouverture pittoresque, which offered a welcome opportunity to revel in tone painting and characterisation: ‘Nobody paints with stronger brushstrokes than he’, was the verdict by one of Telemann’s contemporaries. With a number of highly praised recordings, the Polish band Arte dei Suonatori is firmly established as a leading ensemble performing on authentic instruments. Among the group’s previous recordings for BIS is a collaboration with Martin Gester: the set of Handel’s Concerti grossi, Op. 6, which was selected as ‘Orchestral Disc of the Month’ in BBC Music, and described as ‘a model of authentic Handel performance’ in the German early music magazine Toccata.
