Notes and Editorial Reviews

Australian early music group the Elysium Ensemble continue their series of recordings of duos on period instruments focusing on the art of elegant conversation in the Baroque with this album of canons and fantasias by Georg Philipp Telemann. With a programme centered on the Melodious Canons composed in 1738 in Paris, Elysium principals Greg Dikmans (flute) and Lucinda Moon (violin) also introduce an accompanying selection of Telemann’s solo fantasias for their respective instruments. The Elysium Ensemble has been acclaimed by critics for its elegant performances, fine musicianship and authoritative interpretations of music from the Baroque and Classical periods. This special ensemble embodies the concept of elysium (defined in the 17th Read more century as a state of ideal happiness) by bringing together musicians whose awareness of the stylistic demands of the repertoire is combined with a mastery of period instruments. The ensemble’s performances are indicative of the freshness and spontaneity which the musicians bring to this collaboration through discussion, rehearsal, experimentation and research. Read less
