Telemann - Ouverture Suites (2006)

Telemann

Il Concerto Barocco

 

During the early 18th century the ouverture (suite) enjoyed great popularity at the German courts. While Johann Sigismund Kusser was the first to add a French ouverture to the German suite, Georg Muffat is generally regarded as the composer that introduced the French ouverture to Germany with his publication of “Florilegium primum [1695”] and “Florilegium secundum [1698]”. Georg Philipp Telemann, along with J.S. Bach, Graupner en Fasch, developed this genre into the form known simply as the “ouverture”. The title “overture”, should be understood here as the abbreviated form of overture with all the airs and dance movements. At the beginning of the 18th century, the French ouverture was freed from its scenic role to become an instrumental form in its own right. The ouverture form was characterized by a slow and solemn opening section with a stately dotted rhythm followed by a quick fugato section and a return of the initial slow section. A suite of dance movements then follows the overture as such.

Il Concerto Barocco

The members of Il Concerto Barocco have a widely different international background but one thing in common: their passion for early music. Many left their home countries to specialise in early music in the Netherlands, and musical friends do not part easily. As Il Concerto Barocco they meet regularly to play music of the late Renaissance and Baroque on period instruments or copies, performing with widely varied instrumentations to suit particular programmes ranging from intimate chamber music to large-scale oratorios. 

 

Since its foundation in 2002, Il Concerto Barocco has become a welcome and regular guest at many concert venues. It has its own concert series in the Waterstaatskerk in Hengelo, where the ensemble is based, and joins in choral projects throughout the Netherlands and in Germany. CDs issued in the last three years featuring music by Telemann, Schmelzer and Vivaldi have met with widespread acclamation.
