Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) was one of the prolific composers of all time. The German Baroque composer produced 3,000 compositions, half of which have been misplaced. These embody 1,700 cantatas, 600 orchestral suites, and quite a few operas and concertos. Telemann was the godfather of J.S. Bach’s son, Carl Philipp Emanuel. Telemann influenced a youthful technology of gallant composers reminiscent of C.P.E Bach, who would set the stage for the Classical interval.
Telemann’s Sonata in D Main, TWV 44:1 resembles a concerto. But, it’s nearer to a string suite with trumpet obligato. Within the efficiency beneath, its first motion (Sinfonia. Spirituoso) is preceded by a rousing trumpet fanfare. The second motion (Largo) options and intimate dialog between two violins and basso continuo. Its thriller and lament is quickly swept away by the celebratory closing Vivace.
