L' Accademia giocosa

Telemann’s musical legacy is extremely extensive and comprises all the customary musical genres of his time. Typical of Telemann are cantabile melodies, inventively applied timbres and, especially in his late works, unusual harmonic effects as well. The instrumental works frequently reveal the strong influence of French and Italian music, and occasionally folkloristic Polish influences as well. Stefan Schilli, solo oboist of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, has strongly committed himself to this repertoire on BR Klassik; this forms the basis for the creation of the present CD with Schilli’s “Accademia giocosa” as a co-production with that broadcasting station.
