The works by Georg Philipp Telemann and his north German colleagues presented on this GENUIN release, featuring Baroque violinist Gabriele Steinfeld and harpsichordist Anke Dennert, reveal no hint of the coolness associated with the Hanseatic city. The full range of passion from an epoch overflowing with artistic energy is captured by the two musicians, on instruments that were already being played on the Elbe when the young Telemann was demonstrating his almost southern temperament in the city. What’s more, their violin from 1680 and harpsichord from 1716 tell us gripping musical tales by Johann Schop, Matthias Weckmann, and Thomas Baltzar. In Telemann’s own words: let us come forth and be joyful!
