About

Having previously recorded the Baroque greats such as Handel and Vivaldi, Pamela Thorby completes her anthology of eighteenth century favourites with Telemann’s Recorder Sonatas and Fantasias.

Telemann’s legacy as a composer of recorder music is among the richest of the age. The warmth and conviviality of Telemann’s writing, the easy beauty of his melodies, as well as the knowing playfulness and ingenuity across many national styles, are fully explored in this engaging programme.

Pamela utilises a range of recorders in many sizes, known to players in the eighteenth century but only recently again perfected by makers for modern use. Telemann’s virtuosic ‘concerto style’ writing provides many opportunities for Pamela to further cement her deserved reputation as ‘queen of the recorder’.

Accompanying Pamela are Ensemble Marsyas’ Peter Whelan (bassoon), Alison McGillivray (cello), Elizabeth Kenny (archlute/guitar) and Marcin Świątkiewicz (harpsichord/organ).

Pamela Thorby has an international reputation as the UK’s most stylish and creative recorder virtuoso. She is most regularly heard on Karl Jenkins’ fabulous Adiemus recordings, making her possibly one of the most listened to recorder players in the world.

Pamela’s ability to assimilate many genres of music and her love of improvisation has led to collaborations with leading jazz, folk and pop musicians in an influential career in which she has travelled the world as concerto soloist, chamber musician and orchestral principal. Her numerous and diverse recordings include acclaimed chamber music albums with the much admired Palladian Ensemble and a continuing series of highly praised solo recordings for Linn.
