Somewhere in Time: Telemann’s ‘Lost’ 12 Fantasias for Solo Viol, 1735

Located in 2014 by Thomas Fritzsch, a copy of Telemann’s self-published 1735 fantasias for viola da gamba survived near Hanover at Ledenburg Palace in the collection of Eleonore von Münster (née von Grothaus, 1734-1794). Dedicated to musical subscriber Mr. Pierre Chaunell (1703-1789) and published in a period when the viol was already out of fashion in Europe, Telemann’s unique fantasias encompass a plethora of forms – both old and new, inspired by the Polish and Moravian music of his early career, filled with techniques spanning fugal writing to elements of the rondo and concerto, straddling the High Baroque and the galant. Join New Comma Baroque’s Phillip Serna honoring the music of Telemann! There’s Bach in the Subways, and now there’s TeleMannia!
