Regular performances in some of the world’s most prestigious venues have confirmed Florilegium’s status as one of Britain’s most outstanding period instrument ensembles. Since their formation in 1991 they have established a reputation for stylish and exciting interpretations, from intimate chamber works to large-scale orchestral and choral repertoire. This double-CD release of Telemann’s Essercizii Musici is Florilegium’s 27th collaboration with Channel Classics.

“In these works in the ‘Essercizii Musici’, Telemann combines two basic movement types associated with the early history of the genre: one that is more retrospective and learned in approach and the other that manifests more modern gallant tendencies.

“There are too many works in the collection to present here so in this first release we include solo sonatas for most of the instruments together with a group of trio sonatas offering the listener an insight into the different styles and instrumental combinations that make up Telemann’s unique sound scape and ensure his music is immediately recognisable. We look forward to bringing you the next set in future years.”
