Telemann: Solos & Trios
Format: COMPACT DISC
Extempore; Firlus, Krzysztof; Malke, Malgorzata; Firlus, Anna
The EXTEMPORE ensemble consists of three experienced and versatile artists involved in the historical performance of early music: violinist Malgorzata Malke, harpsichordist and organist Anna Firlus, and Krzysztof Firlus playing viola da gamba. The passion for chamber music, early music, and discovering the unknown prompted them to establish an ensemble in 2007, when they were still students of the Academy of Music in Katowice. Georg Philipp Telemann, traditionally a slightly underrated master of Baroque music, exceptionally well corresponds to the musical temperament of the ensemble. The album includes Telemann’s trio sonatas and solo works, two of which are in a way “new” – compositions only a few years ago considered to be missing – arranged for the EXTEMPORE ensemble.
