About the album

This is an album of music from the Galant era, a term that covers a whole world of sins and rather than try to describe it, we’ve found some of our favourite examples and decided to present them to you here. This is our introduction of both Postscript and the music of the Galant period, and with Telemann as the central theme, we’ve chosen composers who complement, match or contrast with his style. You’ll hear his work throughout the programme, from the dark, ominous Largo of the Quartet that starts the performance to the more dance-like or lyrical pieces that follow.

"[Ralph Rousseau] follows the (excellent!) footsteps of other viola da gamba players, but adds more to his interpretation’s dance-like character […] aided by the brilliant recording in TRPTK style."

Aart van der Wal, Opus Klassiek

"Telemann never gets boring, even for a single moment. Definitely also thanks to Rousseau, who lets his six-string [viola da] gamba by Georg Aman sing and speak, with expressive extremes without hunting for effects, as well as a rhetorical expressive power without any artificial allures."

Eddie Vetter, Klassieke Zaken

"Passionate folk dances are next to humble lamentations and inventive polyphony."

Frits van der Waa, de Volkskrant
