The dance movements in each of the six Partitas are quintessential Telemann: brief, unaffected by false intensity even in the three minor-key works, always infused with a lively appreciation of harmony, beautifully proportioned structures and voice-leading that enables each voice of the counterpoint to be heard at any point.
Telemann himself advertised the lack of chromaticism with charming candour: ‘I also cultivated the brevity of the Arias, partly to preserve the energy of the performer and partly to avoid boring the listener's ears due to the length… Finally, I have tried to present something that could meet everyone's taste.’ In this it can be conclusively said that he succeeded.
The most recent collaboration of these fine musicians was a Brilliant Classics album of recorder sonatas by Marcello, Vivaldi and Bellinzani (96052) which attracted critical praise both for the rarity of the repertoire and the idiomatic finesse of the performances.
‘Recorder aficionados will certainly enjoy this disc. Manuel Staropoli and his colleagues deliver fine performances’ – MusicWeb International
Their recording of Vivaldi’s trio sonatas for Baroque flute (94173) likewise ‘should appeal to both Vivaldi lovers and recorder aficionados alike. The recorder playing is as good as one could wish’ (MusicWeb International).
