The trio sonatas by Telemann were already regarded by his contemporaries as “models of their kind”, they demonstrate Telemann’s imaginative composing style. Compagnia Transalpina under the direction of Andreas Böhlen highlights the colourful partnership of recorder and oboe, complimented by a rich bass line combining bassoon, cello and harpsichord. Sumptuous ornamentation is applied to the upper lines, inspired by Telemann’s own writing, resulting in dynamic and flamboyant ensemble playing. Recorder player and jazz-saxophonist Andreas Böhlen, professor for recorder at the renowned Schola Cantorum in Basel, Switzerland, has combined forces on this recording with leading baroque oboist Andreas Helm, professor in Vienna. Produced as a SuperAudioCD, this album presents versions in high-resolution stereo as well as in multi-channel surround sound.
