"Thomas Triesschijn is a fluent virtuoso and his arrangement of three instrumental movements from two of Bach's cantatas to form a concerto comes over well. The concertos by Graupner and Johann Friedrich Fasch are genuine recorder works and are stlyishly played."
Thomas Triesschijn, with his seductive recorder sound, phrases extremely imaginatively and never superficially with virtuosity. He doesn't act as a bold soloist, but proves that he sees himself as an honest ensemble player. A thoroughly captivating recording!
We hear many styles, timbres and playing styles and we find a new world of sound. The result is a phenomenal sample of compositions with the recorder in a starring role – either as an ensemble instrument or as a soloist.
The Dutch ensemble The Counterpoints XL, expanded here to a small baroque orchestra, not only want to offer you beautiful music by Bach and Telemann on this wonderfully beautiful CD, on their historical instruments or on the best copies thereof, but also to introduce you to the equally brilliant music of their previously unknown contemporaries, Fasch and Graupner.
