Syrinx – The Saxon Alternative
Belinda Paul, Ann Allen – oboes, oboes d’amore; Hanna Geisel – taille; Sally Holman, Inga Maria Klaucke – bassoons; Anneke Scott, Kate Goldsmith – horns; Dan Tidhar – harpsichord
Telemann’s wind music reveals a fascinating mix of styles: perfectly balanced baroque dances and full-blown orchestral overtures rub shoulders with the rustic. The oboe and horn ensemble was a new phenomenon when Telemann was writing this music and he takes full advantage of the opportunity to experiment with these new sounds – milking the horn calls for all they are worth but also throwing up the unusual and beautiful combination of solo horn and oboe d’amore.
“…the Syrinx ensemble’s perky playing, ensuring endless pleasure” – The Sunday Times
