    Variety is the spice of life.
    It has been said that Vivaldi wrote the same concerto 300 times. Could anyone possibly say that of Telemann? Not only do the specimens here feature every kind of weird and wonderful instrumental combination – four trumpets, three horns, two flutes and calchedon (a kind of lute), and even mandolin, harp and dulcimer; they also display the most amazing variety of styles, from Vivaldian exuberance to elegant Ancien Régime dances by way of learned German counterpoint. If you ever wondered where Bach got the idea for the Brandenburg Concertos, you could do much worse than explore the concertos of Telemann . . .
