GEORG PHILIPP TELEMANN:
PARIS QUARTETS

Quadri a violino, flauto traversiere, viola da gamba
o violoncello, e fondamento (1730):
Concerto II in D Major
Sonata II in G Minor
Nouveaux quatuors en six suites (1738):
Premier Quatuor in D Major
4e. Quatuor in B Minor


Having been invited by several of the most prominent French musicians to visit Paris, Telemann composed and published the first set of his remarkable "Paris Quartets" in 1730, and left Hamburg for Paris seven years later, where all 12 of the quartets were performed, almost surely with Teleman himself on the harpsichord. The second set of quartets was published in Paris during this visit in 1738. Two years later Telemann related the following:

       "The admirable performances of these quartets by Messrs Blavet (transverse flute), Guignon (violin), the younger Forcroy [i.e. Forqueray] (viola da gamba) and Edouard (cello) would be worth describing were it possible for words to be found to do them justice. In short, they won the attention of the ears of the court and the town, and procured for me in a very little time an almost universal renown and increased esteem."

Join us for the opening 2024 Salish Sea Early Music Festival and an unusual and expansive journey through the music for guitar, lute and flute of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, including elaborate jazzed-up versions of well known songs of the time, published by the incredible wind instrument virtuosi of the late 16th century, along with canzonas, sonatas and suites from Spain, Italy, England and France. The instruments include the renaissance guitar, which is considerably smaller and more mellow-toned than its modern descendant, theorbo (an extremely long-necked lute), the one-piece cylindrical renaissance flute along with the bass renaissance flute, and the one-keyed baroque flute.
