Ensemble Meridiana - Tastes of Europe - Kidderminster Shuttle

 

Ensemble Meridiana, "Tastes of Europe: Telemann trios and quartets" (Linn CKD 368) - George Philipp Telemann was one of the 18th Century's most prolific musical talents, and this popular baroque composer's open-minded approach to his art enabled him to draw on influences from France and Italyas well as his German homeland. Telemann enjoyed his greatest success within the chamber music genre, and some of his finest creations have been revived here by the simillarly eclectic Ensemble Meridiana, utilising a mixture of copies and original Baroque instruments. The four "Trios" are particularly impressive, proving the highlights of this sparkling Linn recital.
