Telemann: Essercizii Musici

Florilegium is a period instrument ensemble founded in 1991 and based in Britain. This two-disc collection features eleven of the twenty-four works from Telemann's Essercizii Musici. This selection of solo sonatas and trio sonatas offers the listener an insight into the different styles and instrumental combinations that make up Telemann's unique soundscape and ensure his music is immediately recognizable. BELOW: Excerpts from the album.

Bach: 6 Sonatas for Violin and Piano
Nicolas Dautricourt, violin
Juho Pohjonen, piano

This recording takes a more modern than period approach to these six sonatas, opting for a modern piano rather than a harpsichord or fortepiano.

If you have a new recording you would like us to consider for inclusion in our Thursday "For the Record" feature, please e-mail Editor Laurie Niles. Be sure to include the name of your album, a link to it and a short description of what it includes.

All kidding aside, I really like his music. Listening to it makes me feel happy and joyous.
