Info for Telemann: Sacred Cantatas



Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–1767) is one of the most outstanding German Baroque composers and was an influential musical force in the first half of the 18th century. After initial success as a musician in Leipzig, in 1712 he was appointed the city director of music and Kapellmeister in Frankfurt am Main. He gained widespread international fame by 1737/38 at the latest by performing several concerts in Paris. Of his over 1,400 extant sacred cantatas, the maestro composed at least 54 for bass solo.

The L’arpa festante chamber orchestra, which has already earned international critical acclaim for its Splendid Harmony album featuring works by Schütz pupils, has now made a recording with bass-baritone and Telemann expert Klaus Mertens of further undiscovered sacred cantatas for bass solo with period instruments.

Discovered in archives, some of these cantatas were reconstructed for the recording. The opening chorus and the cantata “All’s Glück und Ungelücke” for the Twelfth Sunday after Trinity, the communion cantata “Fliehethin, ihr bösen Tage” and “Soll ich nicht von Jammer sagen,” as well as the cantata “Vater unser im Himmelreich,” an exegesis of the first stanza of Martin Luther’s hymn of the same name, are world premiere recordings. The cantata “Herr! erhöre meine Stimme” was also recorded for the first time for this release and stands out for the remarkable dramatic suspense which builds up and is only resolved in the third movement. The album is rounded out with further Telemann works: two quartets for 2 violins, viola and basso continuo, the Sonata in F major and the Concerto in E minor.

L'arpa festante
The baroque orchestra L’arpa festante takes its name from Giovanni Battista Maccioni’s dramatic work performed at the opening of the Munich opera house in 1653. Its name has come to stand for the group’s artistic work and musical commitment. Founded in 1983, L’arpa festante is one of the longest-established German Early music ensembles. It has achieved an enviable reputation not only for its distinctive sound in performances of instrumental works, but as a partner to leading choirs in works from the whole range of Baroque, Classical and Romantic choral-orchestral literature. The group uses original instruments appropriate to the works it performs, enabling it to faithfully recreate the authentic sounds and colors of these works. The individual players’ extensive musical experience, and the virtuosity of their playing combine to produce the ensemble’s unmistakeable sound: colorful, richly nuanced, sensitive, and expressive. The dramatic moment is spiritedly portrayed through the diverse sounds of historical instruments. The group specializes in the rediscovery and performance of unknown works from the 17th century as well as the Classical era. It increasingly performs oratorios and works from the Romantic symphonic repertoire. The size of the orchestra ranges from solo concertino scoring to full orchestral strength of around 50 musicians, according to the musical requirements of the works performed. Numerous CD recordings, enthusiastically received by critics and public alike, have brought L’arpa festante wide public attention. Their discography comprises around 30 recordings on leading labels and ranges from works of the High Baroque (Rupert Ignaz Mayr, David Pohle, Johann Philipp Förtsch, Dieterich Buxtehude) via the Late Baroque period (Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, George Frideric Handel, Jan Dismas Zelenka) to works of the Classic (Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, Heinrich Graun, Christian Ernst Graf, Giovanni Battista Martini, Josef Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) and Romantic eras (Anton Bruckner, Camille Saint-Saëns, Hector Berlioz, Bernhard Molique).
