Works by Telemann, J.S. Bach, Handel and Blavet
"Telemann alone has above mere fame been raised." (J. Mattheson)
Georg Philipp Telemann (1681—1767) was known not only for his modernism and inventiveness but also his business sense. Through subscription schemes his music inﬂuenced his contemporary subscribers J.S. Bach, Handel and Blavet.
Telemann's profound knowledge of the recorder and its capacity is evident throughout the entire Sonata in C major (TWV41:C2). Aware of how to employ the recorder’s charm, his writing encompasses the whole range of the recorder, highlighting its highest register.
The sonata opens with a generous Cantabile, followed directly by an Allegro brimming with playful humour and virtuosity. The Grave introduces a more subdued, intimate and longing affect to the sonata. But not for long: the final Vivace is a wake-up call, juxtaposing the opposing ends of the recorder’s range. [...]

INTERNATIONAL PRESS REVIEWS ABOUT THIS NEW ALBUM:
Album Presentation and Recommendation!
»Recorder player Tabea Debus is one of the most impressive young musicians of her generation. [...] This is an extremely well thought out programme of music that brings together four interlinked composers. The playing of Tabea Debus and her companions is outstanding, with an enticing combination of musical sensitivity and commendably undemonstrative virtuosity.«
Andrew Benson-Wilson : Early Music Reviews +, UK / international (08/07/2019)
CD Review and Tip!
»Recorder player par excellence Tabea Debus strikes again. [...] This new CD not only offers a refined and polished listening experience, but also shines a light on the communal musical life of Baroque composers. Gee, I wonder what a 1729 Woodstock music festival would have been like. Barock anyone?«
