Catalogue Number: 03N026
Description: OK, the Telemann is one of the most-recorded of his concertos, but, for reasons not necessary to pass along, this one has a cimbalom prelude, postlude and this "hammered dulcimer" is also used in the continuo (!). The Graun is a world premiere recording, one of the last such concertos written for the gamba while the Tartini, one copy of which has the posthumous inscription "per la viola" and whose tessitura excludes the classical viola or cello, appears to have no other recording. Dorothee Oberlinger (recorder), Marcel Comendant (cimbalom), Il Suonar Parlante Orchestra; Vittorio Ghilemi (viola da gamba).
