Georg Philipp Telemann 1681-1767
Orchestral Suites


Alongside his innumerable cantatas and his Tafelmusik, Telemann applied himself with enormous skill to the writing of Ouvertüren, the orchestral suites in the French style which were so highly esteemed in the German-speaking lands. His suites, full of humour, imagination and impish gaiety, display the outstanding artistry of a composer who brought a new light-hearted spirit to German music. All of them bear witness to the exceptional stylistic qualities of Telemann, the most famous composer in Baroque Germany during the first half of the 18th century.
