It seems that in light of a renaissance of their works, the appreciation of monumental contrapuntal masterpieces by Bach and Handel infringed, to a small extent, on the empathy for the new rather different charminggalant style. With his keyboard works, particularly the fantasias, Georg Philipp Telemann is one of the most talented and important representatives of this style which seeks an equilibrium between the suite and sonata: he knew the various styles of his time like no other: he fully commanded the French, Italian, and the Polish styles.

A near inexhaustible fountain of melodic ingenuity gives these pieces their refreshing charm.

    The music in this book is excellent. I highly recommend it. I purchased this volume to replace the one I purchased 20 some years ago. I was shocked when I received it. The print is so small you need a magnifying glass. Buy the Dover edition! It's the exact...

    same copy of the old engraving, the print is slightly larger and costs a fraction of the price.

  • May 20, 2008 beautiful material for study

    I like playing organ music, and this beautiful reprint of Bärenreiter gives me much joy in studying and playing this music of Telemann wich is characterised by much variety and is not too difficult for me. I thank my teacher who advised me to buy this nice book.
