About

After Telemann had composed the ‘French Cycle’, he wrote his annual cycle for 1716/17 in the Italian style, the other style then current in the music world. This style is characterized by the konzertierendes Prinzip, that is, by the seemingly playful and relaxed but nonetheless finely organized treatment of motifs and themes manifesting itself in the instrumental concerto but also in the great opera aria. Telemann’s cycle, in which he employed the stylistic elements developed in Italy, was therefore termed the ‘Concerten-Jahrgang’ and sometimes even the ‘Italian Cycle’. In 1716/17 Telemann composed and performed the church compositions from Advent to the Third Day of Pentecost. The second half of the annual cycle extending from Trinity Sunday to the end of the church year followed in 1719/20. The present CD brings together four compositions, two from the first half of the annual cycle and two from the subsequently composed second half. The konzertierendes Prinzip is developed in different ways in each piece. This performance, with the Mannheimer Hofkapelle and Ex Tempore under Florian Heyerick, was one of the highlights of the Telemann Festival Days in 2016.
