The six Overtures were published in the 1740s, a comparatively quiet decade in Telemann’s almost ceaselessly productive career. Each is in three movements and each contains a fugue. But their keys are unidentified here, which is silly. French style prevails with agreeable central European seasoning. Nicholas Anderson
