Georg Philipp Telemann gave us one of many richest legacies of instrumental track from the eighteenth century. even though thought of a definitive contribution to the style in the course of his lifetime, his concertos, sonatas, and suites have been then almost missed for almost centuries following his demise. but those works are actually one of the most well-liked within the baroque repertory. In track for a combined style, Steven Zohn considers Telemann's tune from stylistic, time-honored, and cultural views. He investigates the composer's cosmopolitan "mixed taste"--a mixing of the French, Italian, English, and varnish nationwide styles-and his innovative growth of this idea to include combinations of the previous (late baroque) and new (galant) types. Telemann had an both outstanding penchant for favourite amalgamation, exemplified by means of his pioneering position in constructing hybrid forms similar to the sonata in concerto sort ("Sonate auf Concertenart") and overture-suite with solo software ("Concert en ouverture"). Zohn examines the extramusical meanings of Telemann's "characteristic" overture-suites, which endure descriptive texts associating them with literature, drugs, politics, faith, and the flora and fauna, and which acted as cars for the composer's willing experience of musical humor. Zohn then explores Telemann's remarkable self-publishing company at Hamburg, and sheds gentle at the formerly unrecognized borrowing by way of J.S. Bach from a Telemann concerto. song for a combined flavor extra unearths how Telemann's sort polonaise generates musical and social meanings in the course of the undying oppositions of Orient-Occident, urban-rural, and serious-comic.
