Wilbert Hazelzet is one of the most sensitive Baroque flautists of the present day. His Telemann anthology is discerningly chosen and refreshingly off the beaten track. At least, that was so until recently for, since this disc was first issued, the three rarely heard chamber concertos which provide the meat in Hazelzet’s recital have been recorded in their full context of Six concerts et Six suites on CPO. But, while all six Concerts are well worth getting to know, it is Hazelzet’s performance of a selection which makes the greater appeal. His tone is warm-coloured, his expressive sensibilities all that one could ask for and his fellow musicians intimate and supportive. Nicholas Anderson
