Telemann’s Concerto for recorder and traverso in E minor is one of the very few pieces from the period that pairs both kinds of flute: the transverse flute and “flute a bec,” the recorder. Here we have the first two movements of the four movement concerto. In the first movement we hear long stretching lines that showcase each instrument and its timbre in turn before they come together. In the vigorous second movement features a loosely fugal ritornello and features each instrument in turn.

This recording is very special as both the traverso and the recorder that are used are 18th century originals. Both are ivory instruments by Georg Heinrich Scherer in the collection of the great recorder maker and innovator Friedrich von Huene. Following restoration by Friedrich the two instruments fortuitously play well together. The opportunity to hear two original instruments by the same maker in such excellent playing condition is indeed rare, and it is incredibly generous of Friedrich to have loaned these instruments to be used in this recording.

"September: it was the most beautiful of words, he’d always felt, evoking orange-flowers, swallows, and regret."
