About

The works on this disc are from Telemann’s time as Music Director in Hamburg when the city held an annual festive banquet to thank and celebrate the civic guard, positions held by fifty-seven captains who were in charge of all military matters and provided protection to the city.

Of the some thirty Bürgerkapitänsmusiken (Compositions for the Civic Captains) composed by Music Director Telemann between 1723 and his death in 1767, only nine works are extant in full. The allegorical texts refer to the local Hamburg context and they show they are hardly insignificant occasional and commissioned works but oratorios of the highest musical calibre. The Oratorio featured on this disc is bursting with musical surprises!
