About this Recording
8.553732 - TELEMANN: Musique de Table (Tafelmusik), Vol. 4

George Philipp Telemann, more famous in his lifetime than Johann Sebastian Bach, was one of the most prolific composers of the early 18th century. Tefelmusik (Table Music) is one of the earliest examples of sponsorship, work on the score being made possible by 206 subscribers. It is music that has a perfect mix of vivacity and relaxation, and would have provided excellent after dinner entertainment, for this music, with its mixture of symphonic and concerto sections, that will titillate the ear.
