January 30, 2017: WFMT – New Comma Baroque Performs Telemann’s Travels on Live from WFMT

Georg Philipp Telemann

On January 30, 2017, WFMT presented New Comma Baroque’s program ‘Telemann’s Travels: The Eclecticism, Diversity, and Virtuosity of Telemann‘ on Live from WFMT hosted by Kerry Frumkin.  Telemann’s Travels is a delightful and delectable journey through vividly virtuosic solo & chamber music, filled with French, Italian, German and Polish flavors, encapsulating the travels of one of the 18th century’s most prolific composers: Georg Philipp Telemann. Telemann’s Travels features selections of some of the composer’s most well-known works for Baroque flute, Baroque violin, viola da gamba, and harpsichord, including music from Der getreue Music-Meister (Hamburg, 1728 -29), the Six quatuors a violon, flute, viole ou violoncello et basse continue (Hamburg, 1730, Paris, 1736), the Nouveaux quatuors en six suites a une flute traversiere, un violon, une basse de viole ou violoncelle et basse (Paris, 1738), the Essercizii Musici overo Dodesci Soli e Dodeci Trii à diversi stromenti (Hamburg, before 1740), and excerpts from the newly-discovered Fantasias for solo viol – not heard since the 1730s!

Performers: Leighann Daihl Ragusa, traverso, Matthew C. Cataldi, Baroque violin, Phillip W. Serna, viola da gamba & Emily J. Katayama, harpsichord
