'Ensemble Meridiana performs both [concertos] with sensibility and well-balanced ensemble in the ritornello sections. Reinhard Goebel and members of Cologne Musica Antiqua put up hot competition in a recording issued in 2005, but … my preference lies with the more expressively relaxed playing of Ensemble Meridiana … the disc is sympathetically recorded and well worth investigation' (International Record Review) » More

'Bach wasn't the only 18th-century German composer to soak up the foreign musical manners that are attested to by the French or Italian adjectives in the titles of some of his works. This new CD focuses on Telemann as a master of French and Italian styles as well as a consummate practitioner of 18th-century fusion. The players of Ensemble Meridiana are appropriately international (Swiss, British, Swedish and Norwegian) and they play with real spirit and zest' (The Irish Times)

'[Ensemble Meridiana] have been taking the early music world by storm … having recently won their third international award, they have also just released their debut album, Tastes of Europe. If you're not sure Telemann chamber music is for you, think again—the group's interpretation of these trios and quartets is astoundingly good and well worth a listen' (Early Music Today)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Telemann and Handel were two of the most skilled composers for the treble recorder during the late Baroque. Both understood the character of the instrument, its limitations and its strong points, and wrote affectingly, often brilliantly for it. The Trio Sonata in D minor for treble recorder, violin and continuo exists in a manuscript at The Royal Conservatoire of Music in Brussels. In the opening movement the two melody instruments share the initial thematic material whilst the recorder, especially, is given extended passagework exploring both the versatility of the instrument and its performer. The Adagio is mildly plaintive, never emerging from the home key of D minor. Both the following Allegro and Presto movements are vigorous and animated; in the Presto we can detect a Balkan folk-music flavour in the strong unison passages of the two upper instruments.
