Chamber works of G. F.Telemann
For people living in the 21st century it seems so wild a response with which the consistory of Leipzig has accompanied the decision on the choice on a post of the cantor of church St. Foma Johann Sebastian Bach in 1723: “For want of anything better, be satisfied with a mean”. And “the best” and the most desirable was Georg Philipp Telemann, who also claimed this place, but at the last moment he refused the comparative testing.
It was Telemann who was recognized by contemporaries as "the foremost composer of Germany", his authority was indisputable, and none other composer of that epoch couldn't be compared to productivity of Telemann. In all genres - in opera, in church music, in chamber compositions for home music-making - Telemann left works confirming improbable talent and huge skill. In the 20th century at the era of Baroque the main places in "table of ranks" have got others - J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel, and A. Vivaldi. But it soon surfaced that without the music of Telemann, the picture of the musical 18th century is incomplete and flawed, that his works perfectly bear comparison with the works of the above-named authors, possessing an absolutely individual style.
The ensemble "Chamber Soloists of Minsk" (artistic director - Dmitry Zubov) devotes the concert to the 250th anniversary of the death of G. F. Telemann (1681-1767). In the program - chamber works of the composer. Fans of ancient music will be able to hear the instruments that rarely sound in Belarus - a recorder flute and flute-traverso, viola da gamba, baroque oboe and baroque fagott. Together with Galina Matyukova, Elena Maltseva, Oleg Yatsyna, Ilona Les and Dmitry Zubov, well-known to the Minsk public, guests from St. Petersburg Konstantin Yakovlev and Rustik Pozyumsky will come on stage (however, who performed in Minsk many times).
