Telemann: Keyboard fantasias

Our rating 
5.0 out of 5 star rating 5.0

COMPOSERS: Telemann
LABELS: Harmonia Mundi
WORKS: Keyboard fantasias
PERFORMER: John Butt (harpsichord)
CATALOGUE NO: HMU 907176
Selections from two entertaining dozzine (dozens) of Italianate fast-slow-fast movements frame a French-style douzaine. Butt plays these latter – slow-fast-slow, plus perky, frivolous dance – on an exceptionally beautiful original instrument. Sparkling virtuosity, enchanting sensitivity, superb recording – a delightful find. George Pratt
