Collegium Musicum 90 was founded by Simon Standage and the late Richard Hickox in 1990, and is today a well-established ensemble for the performance of baroque and classical music, with a repertoire ranging from chamber music to large-scale works for choir and orchestra. As an exclusive Chandos artist, the ensemble has recorded more than fifty albums for the label, which includes nine of instrumental music by Telemann. In recognition of the success of the Telemann series in promoting the reputation of the composer, Simon Standage was awarded the Georg-Philipp-Telemann-Preis in 2010.

The works presented here all survive in autograph scores, or have autograph connections. Today only eighteen such scores of instrumental music survive from Telemann’s long and prolific career as a composer, and nine of them are included in a collection that belonged to his grandson Georg Michael Telemann.

The Ouvertures-Suites in F major and D major, as well as the Divertimento in E flat, form part of this autograph collection, and were composed by Telemann in the 1760s when he was in his eighties, for His Highness the Landgrave of Darmstadt, Ludwig VIII. In a letter that accompanied the scores, Telemann wrote that he had given up composing due to his deteriorating eyesight, but upon reading in the newspaper of the Landgrave’s approaching name day, he ‘became filled with enthusiasm and made a draft for the enclosed works’.

The Concerto in D major belongs to an earlier period in Telemann’s life, as does the Ouverture-Suite in A major. Both these works present less of a direct link to the composer. The Concerto survives only in parts, and the personal touch by Telemann is provided by a correction in the surviving parts. The Ouverture-Suite is one of comparatively few ouvertures-suites by Telemann in which a solo instrument (in this instance, a solo violin) plays a prominent role throughout. There are currently some doubts about the authenticity of the handwriting in the score.

"...As the works on this disc belong to the lesser-known parts of Telemann’s oeuvre and his music never fails to entertain, lovers of his music should surely consider this disc."
Johan van Veen - - 5 December 2012

"...My admiration for Simon Standage’s Collegium Musicum 90 continues to grow with each new disc (especially their wonderful recent recording of Albinoni’s Opus 10 (CHAN0769)). I have often categorised period instrument performances of Baroque music as either stylish or exciting, but no other ensemble I know of has so skilfully occupied the middle ground by exemplifying both ideals simultaneously. Chandos were kind enough to provide both their CD-rez download and the Hi-rez 24/96 for comparison – and while the standard download was unquestionably very fine sounding, Hi-rez offered a sufficient degree of extra focus, definition and sense of solidity (on the playback equipment available to me, YMMV) to easily justify the additional cost. If your collection would benefit from some superbly played and finely recorded Telemann – and I suspect it would! – then this generously-filled disc is a great starting point."

Andy Fawcett - - 5 October 2012

“...Standage is in his element here, and he plays expertly as both soloist and leader. His ensemble consists of 13 string players, with six more on winds plus harpsichord. The performances are altogether lively and lovely, and Telemann yet again reminds you of his infinite resourcefulness.”

Barker – American Record Guide – September/October 2012

"... All around, this disc can be highly recommended, even if you have most of the works on other recordings. I would make this one your standard."

Bertil van Boer - Fanfare - September/October 2012


Pauline Guilmot - Pizzicato magazine - June 2012

"...This is a fine and generously proportioned programme of some excellent Telemann, and very enjoyable indeed. The Chandos recording is crisp and detailed with the harpsichord continuo mixing nicely with the rest of the ensemble. Collegium Musicum 90’s performances are spirited and beautifully crafted."
Dominy Clements - - 7 June 2012

“...CM90, as usual, are gently bright and stylish... blessed with an airy, sunny clarity of its own, joined to alert and agile ensemble playing, especially from the strings...”

Lindsay Kemp – Gramophone  magazine – July 2012

“...Fine playing and recorded sound, with erudite booklet notes and visual presentation of the highest quality, impart further lustre to an already widely acclaimed series. Highly recommended.”

Michael Jameson – International Record Review – June 2012
