No eighteenth-century composer was so adept at so many musical styles as Georg Philipp Telemann. Telemann's versatility and inventiveness kept his musical style avant-garde during his entire life. He was not only praised by his contemporaries but was highly respected by the next generation: his fame was immense. Thererfore New Collegium, one of the promising ensembles of the younger generation, has chosen for their first CD on the Ramée label to show Telemann the chameleon, the breadth of his musical palette. Some of the pieces will undoubtedly sound familiar; others, such as the Italianate Trio for violin and cello obbligato, or the pastoral Trio for two violins in scordatura, will surely be delightful, new surprises for many. Coming in and out of disguise with Telemann’s chameleonic notes we often find ourselves wondering: is this truly music by just one composer, not six?

"This new album by New Collegium on Ramée runs the finest Telemann recordings I know very close and is certainly worthy of inclusion in a selective Telemann collection."

"With unusual and rarely-heard pieces forming a significant of this generous and imaginative programme this is a Baroque feast for the ears."

"The ensemble’s timbre is warm and somewhat dark, and there is a terrific sense of teamwork in all of these finely balanced performances."
