Fantasias for Flute Solo – Telemann’s Twelve Fantasies  with Musical Comments

Publisher: Donemus
Instrumentation: Solo Flute

Oversized (14.5″ x 10″); spiral bound, plastic front and back covers

The Twelve Fantasias for solo flute by Georg Philipp Telemann are among the great favorites of the flute repertoire.  Some may think of Teleman’s work as somewhat conventional and predictable Baroque music, but nothing could be further from the truth in these Fantasias.  They are surprising, lively, capricious and humourful.  The Twelve Fantasias each have a different form.  Slow and fast alternate unexpectedly, there is often a suggestion of counterpoint, many modulations and free treatment of dance forms, fugues, toccatas, etc.  One may wonder why such pleasant, playful and amusing, witty and virtuoso Fantasias are not being written for the flute today.  With this idea in mind, flutist Eleonore Pameijer confronted ten Dutch composers with Telemann’s Fantasias, asking them to write a musical commentary, each in his own distinct style.  This led to the creation of ten new Fantasias which are brought together in this volume with their Telemann counterparts.

The complete Fantasias project was premiered in January 1993 by Eleonore Pameijer and met with instant success.  Since then she has performed it countless times in the Netherlands and abroad.
