Notes and Editorial Reviews

“…The precision of ensemble, the crisp articulation and the clarity of texture which Goebel achieves, not perhaps without considerable effort, are admirable features of the Archiv Produktion set and, for sheer efficiency and dependability in such matters, these artists have few rivals…Telemann published his Musique de table in Hamburg in 1733. Each of its three parts or ''Productions'', as he called them, is laid out identically, embracing the principal orchestral and instrumental forms of the late-baroque: French overture and dance suite, quartet, concerto, trio solo sonata and a little orchestral coda, so to speak, which Telemann simply and practically called ''Conclusion''. Much of his finest music is contained in this fulsome anthology Read more and it may be found above all, perhaps, in the quartets and concertos…Goebel's ensemble are splendid in these pieces, of that there is no question… This is, perhaps, especially so in the Concerto in E flat for two horns or ''Trombe selvatiche'' as Telemann called them. Goebel's rhythms are springy, his horns resonant and his sonorities ravishing to the senses…To sum up… outstandingly interesting releases… Recorded sound is excellent…” -- Nicholas Anderson, The Gramophone Read less

 Superb November 15, 2012 By Patricia Y. (SYRACUSE, NY) See All My Reviews "I have worked for a number of years in classical music broadcasting, and I well remember when this was released. Wonderful orchestral texture, the contrast of one group against the other, all played masterfully and with conviction by a superb ensemble. I'd listen to this group any time." Report Abuse
