Telemann - Sonate Á Cinque & Quattro
Quintets & Quartets for strings, flute & Continuo
Jörg Michael Schwarz (director & violin)
In their fifth release with Dorian Sono Luminus, REBEL explodes through the speakers with this exciting collection of Quartets and Quintets by prolific composer Georg Philip Telemann.
Telemann was probably the most famous and commercially successful composer working in Germany in the first half of the eighteenth century. The consummate stylist, Telemann was always striving to write music that was up to the minute. This helped make him one of the most popular composers of his day and of ours.
REBEL, led by Directors / Violinists Jörg Michael Schwarz and Karen Marmer, are known for their vibrant, passionate, and critically acclaimed performances. The ensemble breaths new life into these works with artistic expression and technical precision that can rarely be matched. The lively stage persona of the ensemble leaps out of the recording, connecting with the audience, allowing them to feel more as if theyare part of the musical conversation rather than just merely a listener.
Rebel has been hailed by critics as “Sophisticated and Beguiling” (The New York Times), saying they are “vital....dashing...with performances that lacked nothing in inwardness, charm, or brilliance, as required” (The Boston Globe) and have been praised for their “astonishingly vital music-making” (The Los Angeles Times). This exciting new release is no exception with a performance that is sure to captivate audiences the world over.

Telemann - The Virtuoso Godfather
An unusual mix of familiar and unknown German music for flute, two viols & b.c. by Telemann and his godsons GP Kress and CPE Bach.
“There is a pleasing energy in this playing which is also supple, fluent and idiomatic. The fast movements of Telemann's two fine G major Quartets for flute, two viole di gamba and harpsichord… offer persuasive examples of what I mean.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2006 ****
“Charivari Agréable offer tasteful and well behaved performances…” Gramophone Magazine, Awards 2006

Telemann: Oeuvres Pour Flute Et Violes
Finally together on disc, here are the expressive gambists of Les Voix Humaines and the eloquent breath of Baroque flutist Barthold Kuijken, accompanied by the harpsichordist Eric Milnes. In an array of works by Telemann exploring the French and Italian 'mixed style' adopted by the Germans, and the galant style, these artists perform in turn fantaisies for solo traverso, duets for two gambas, a sonata for traverso and continuo, a sonata for traverso, gamba, and continuo, and the rare instrumental combination of the two quadros for traverso, two gambas, and continuo.
