Tableau Vivant: Telemann in Paris
Chapel at St. Bartholomew's Church
325 Park Avenue at 51st Street, NYC
Karen Marie Marmer, violin & Dongsok Shin, harpsichord with guests: David Ross, traverso & Arnie Tanimoto, viola da gamba. In 1737 Georg Philip Telemann journeyed to Paris at the enthusiastic and long-standing invitation of four distinguished French musicians: the flutist Michel Blavet, the violinist Jean-Pierre Guignon, the gambist Jean-Baptiste Forqueray, and a cellist/harpsichordist known as Prince Édouard. In anticipation of this historic visit, the great master of the goûts-réunis wrote two sets of six quartets expressly for these four musicians. The first set was published in Hamburg; subsequently, both sets were published in Paris. All twelve quartets were played by the four musicians themselves, accompanied, no doubt, by the great master himself.
