Telemann Twelve Fantasias and Other Works
Aldo Abreu performs Georg Philipp Telemann's fantasias for solo recorder and Telemann's Concerto in E Minor for traverso and recorder with Suzanne Stumpf and Musicians of the Old Post Road. All the selections on the disc are performed on historical wind instruments from the collection of Friedrich von Huene.
“The combination of Abreu and Suzanne Stumpf is like clover honey, and the music is played with such sweet wistfulness and (where appropriate) happy energy that one can hardly resist. The Musicians of the Old Post Road are terrific here too.”
