Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...the King's Consort under the direction of Robert King perform the Overture-Suites from the Second and Third Productions of Telemann's anthology...I find the new issue delightful, both musically and from a performance standpoint. The players capture the spirit of the Overture-Suite in D major (Second Production) with pleasing tempos, crisp articulation, taut rhythms and fine ensemble. The trumpet has an important role in this Suite and here it is played with finesse by Crispian Steele-Perkins—resonant, authoritative but never overbearing. Oboes are kept busy, too, as indeed is the leader, Roy Goodman who gives a lively account of the several concertante passages for violin. His presence has contributed much to the ultimate success Read more of this project.

The Overture-Suite in B flat (Third Production) is scored for oboes and strings and here Paul Goodwin and Catherine Latham (oboes) turn in accomplished performances with only occasional lapses into tonal insecurity. Almost throughout there is a lively awareness of dance measures which together with stylish ornamentation, gives the music an airy gracefulness which I have sometimes missed in other versions of this captivating music; only the Bergerie seemed to me to drag its feet. Sensibly, the little orchestral Conclusions which properly end each Production, creating an orchestral frame, are included at the end of each of the two suites."
