Georg Philipp Telemann: Trios
Georg Philipp Telemann: Trios
On 16 December, the Consort Music Foundation will release its second CD, featuring trios by the great German Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann performed by four distinguished Hungarian early musicians: Imre Lachegyi on recorder, Dániel Papp on violin, Aino Oláh on harpsichord and Sándor Szászvárosi on viola da gamba. Their performance of the chamber works of Georg Philipp Telemann, who is considered by many to be the greatest master of Baroque music besides Bach, is sensitive, virtuosic and flawless.

Imre Lachegyi, who has also been the artistic director of the album, has been playing with Sándor Szászvárosi in various ensembles and on almost all of his recordings for some 20 years. He has also been performing with Dániel Papp and Aino Oláh for many years, but they have never appeared on an album together.

These four great musicians who feel at home in baroque music could not have found a more suitable, enjoyable and technically and artistically challenging musical material than Telemann’s colourful, sparkling, and thoroughly baroque music. It is not the music of a dead, long-gone age that needs to be brought to life, but music that is still alive and relevant today, that is to say, eternal music that needs to be interpreted for today’s age in a way that is both intelligible and artistically humble. This, of course, requires impeccable technical preparation, stylistic knowledge, a concerted approach to the smallest nuances of the music, and a creative spirit. It is safe to say that the four musicians have these qualities, and their album is a perfect example.

The beautiful, rich sound of the recording is the result of the excellent acoustics of the Reformed Church in Tahitótfalu, in addition to the excellent instruments and sound engineering. The album is released in the usual Consort Music Foundation quality, with an aesthetic cover and digipack packaging, as the second own released CD of the foundation.
