2017 Telemann 250th Anniversary Programme Telemann’s original Trio Sonatas for recorder and treble viol, and recorder and bass viol, as well as others arranged by the group. This programme can be put together with Telemann’s Solo Cantatas for soprano and obbligato recorder from his 'Harmonischer Gottesdienst'. Telemann at his best!
‘A Celtic Celebration' Traditional Music from Ireland and Scotland, alongside original Celtic, or Celtic inspired, baroque pieces by composers such as: O'Carolan, Playford, Oswald, Eccles, Mell & others. Includes Oswald's 'Airs for the Seasons' and works by the itinerant blind Irish harper, Turlough O'Carolan. Toe-tapping, lyrical, fun: something for everyone!
‘Ground Bass, No Bass’ Contrasting ‘early’ and ‘contemporary’ pieces based on a Ground Bass, to those without a bass line at all. Includes works by: Corelli, Vitali, Fischer, Tollett, Hirose, David Bedford, and our 2001 commissions by Gabriel Jackson and Nicholas Ansdell-Evans.
Catchy title and full of variety!
‘Bach’s Trios Da Camera’ J. S. Bach’s fabulous Trio Sonatas for organ (BWV 525-530), often thought to be a re-working of pre-existing instrumental music due to the complexity of the right and left hands, and the pedal line. Even if not, we have turned them into substantial trio sonatas for recorder and viol.
