Fasch Suite for 3 Flutes , Bassoon & Strings
Telemann Suite E min from Tafelmusik for 2 flutes and Strings
Muffat Armonico Tributo No 5

Another lovely programme directed from the violin by Catherine Martin, leader of the Gabrieli Players. Most of Bach's harpsichord concertos are thought to be reworking of works for other solo instruments and this beautiful concerto, which is not heard often enough, has been reconstructed for the likely original solo violin. We have a bunch of flutes - three, YES 3!!, in a delightful Suite by JF Fasch, of which Linden gave the first modern performance in 2004. The Telemann Suite for just 2 flutes this time, with orchestra, is a mature masterpiece from Telemann's splendid collection. We finish with the fascinating work for strings by Georg Muffat, a German/French composer of Scottish ancestry, probably a pupil of Lully, whose noble music traverses several national styles.
