Georg Philip Telemann (1681-1767) was a German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. Self-taught, he became a composer against the wishes of his family. He was one of the most prolific composers in history and was considered to be one of the greatest composers of his day. His music is an important bridge between late Baroque and early Classical styles.

The works performed here are secular cantatas and opera arias, including rarely heard repertoire. The CD contains no less than 9 world premiere recordings!
Dorothee Mields
is one of the leading interpreters of C17th and C18th music and is feted by audiences and critics alike for her unique timbre and moving interpretations, with her flawless technique and the ethereal clarity of her voice.

The Orfeo Baroque Orchestra, founded in 1996, is a leading ensemble in the field of historical performance and has a special fondness for the music of Telemann. It is conducted here by its Austrian founder and leader Michi Gaigg, a former student of acclaimed Gramophone Award-winning conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt.
Texts and translations are included.
