Telemann Six Concerti with Several Possibilities for Instrumentation (TWV 42) (Full Score hardback & Parts)

If Telemann was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the greatest of all composers, his star, faced with the overwhelming presence of Bach and Handel, paled in the course of the 19th century to the verge of contempt.  This assessment changed radically during the course of the last century. Through the systematic exploration of his music, Telemann, once considered purely an instrumental composer, has emerged into a highly cultivated, culturally well-connected and enormously versatile artistic personality who left an indelible mark on the musical life of his time.  Again and again we discover an individual approach in his works that seems to abandon the musical conventions of his day, both large and small.

The Six Concerti TWV 42 were published in Hamburg around 1715-1720 with the title "Six Concerts and Six Suites for Harpsichord and Flute, or for Harpsichord, Flute and Cello, or for Violin, Flute and Cello or Basso Continuo, or for Harpsichord, Violin, Flute, and Cello" the intention being to make them attartactive to as wide an audience as possible.

They are another example of Telemann as a master craftsmen effectively blending colour and various features into a satisfying whole.
