So many lovers of baroque music would treasure this CD, I’m sure, if they only ever knew it. Being overall similar to his many orchestral suites but somewhat smaller and shorter in comparison, Telemann’s “Bläsersuiten”, five of which are recorded here, are scored for two oboes, two horns and bassoon, and usually performed without a harpsichord continuo. While in the era of Haydn and Mozart, compositions for wind bands were clearly popular and common (called Divertimento and the like), in the earlier 18th century they seem to have been exceedingly rare, making Telemann’s output in the sub-genre possibly unique, and this release all the more valuable. With rich associations of hunting and rustic life, these suites offer light and carefree music with an open air, rather summerly feel, the artfully constructed French overtures followed by short and nimble dances, noble-sounding slower movements and slightly quirky “character pieces”. The renderings by Consortium Classicum are tasteful, elegant and fresh, and although I do prefer the crisper, rougher sound of period instruments, I’ve really come to appreciate the smoothness of this expert ensemble. - One of the finest Telemann CDs in my collection, which - more perhaps than any other - shows why the composer enjoyed such tremendous success and esteem in his time: He was not afraid to entertain.
