“You'll rarely hear such personality in a Baroqueconcerto soloist as the extraordinary Emmanuel Pahud exhibits here. Berlin Baroque Soloists acclimatise effortlessly to an 18th-century palette, and distinguished colleagues they make for Pahud. The flautist sets out his stall from the Andante of the succinct G major concerto (completed from a damaged source and therefore making its recording début) whose startling resemblance to the slow movement of Bach's F minor Concerto, BWV1056, seems to inspire Pahud to a lyricism of understated elegance which one often hears in the best performances of the Bach work. Indeed, it's his sensitivity to Telemann's gestural implications and ability to colour the music at every turn which makes Pahud's playing so enchanting in all five concertos.
Telemann performance on a modern flute will inevitably lead to some recoiling, but one never feels deprived of the gentle and beguiling articulation of a 'period' instrument or its capacity for soft dynamic and purity of sound. One only has to hear the lithe performance of the A major Triple Concerto, from Part 1 of Telemann's famous banquet publication of 1733, Tafelmusik, where character abounds through Pahud's concern with first principles. Joyous exchange and textural delights abound in the Triple Concerto in E major, where Wolfram Christ's viola d'amore and Albrecht Mayer's oboe d'amore combine with the flautist in a ravishingly blended montage. The Flute Concerto in D confirms everything about Pahud's exquisite taste and mesmerising sound. A real winner.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Telemann: Wind Concertos Volume 5
“although these six concertos are undoubtedly music at the lighter end of the Baroque scale, their unfailing compositional skill and amiable artistic personality are realised with relaxed expertise by a pool of soloists able to run around them with ease. The 16-piece orchestra play with a sunny cordiality, and though their sound is more wispy than punchy, it is recorded with sympathetic soft clarity.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2011

Telemann: Sinfonia Melodica
CD includes Two World-Premiere Recordings
“Violinist Rainer Kussmaul, who also directs the ensemble, is on strong form and gives a lively account of the two outer movements. There are other delights too, among them a limpid, lyrically played Largo belonging to the Concerto in A major for two violins. All-in-all, well worth hearing.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2005 *****
“The Overture and the Concerto for violin and strings, TWV51:E3, have been reconstructed by Raimar Orlovsky, one of the players. …from the forthright opening in the strings and the soloists arpeggio response, the playing of the concerto has a wonderful vitality. ...lightness - of touch, not of content - best sums up this disc: one that shows a perfect blend of 'modern' playing with 'historical' awareness.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2006
