Telemann: Tafelmusik / Harnoncourt
Label: DAS ALTE WERK
Composed by: Telemann, Georg Phillip
Inaugurated in 1958, Das Alte Werk quickly gained a reputation for historically informed, high-quality recordings. As the field of early music spread wider and wider and new paths were constantly broken, the imprint rapidly became the touchstone by which other labels were judged, not least for its epoch-making complete recording of Bach’s sacred cantatas. Featuring Nicolas Harnoncourt and his Concentus musicus Wein, this newly reissued, complete Telemann Musique de Table (Tafelmusik) was first released in its present 4CD box set format in 1989.
