"These are fine and extroverted performances of some alternate instrumentations of familiar Bach concertos…The solo playing is remarkable, and Rohrig and Kaiser blend and contrast their sounds beautifully…Rudolf Innig makes a real case for the piece [G-minor S 1058] as a harpsichord concerto…[and] The E-major Violin Concerto…also sounds appropriately baroque in its texture…"

“The various members of Musica Alta Ripa give the work a driving, tense performance that rightly underlines the music's agitation and sense of menace. In fact, these musicians characterize all four concertos extremely well, and even manage to maintain a certain amount of clarity in the unavoidably clanging C major concerto for three harpsichords, BWV 1064. In sum, this is an excellent continuation of an excellent series of recordings.”

…Celebrated German label MDG have assembled a fine and varied chamber music programme of four movement concertos and sonatas plus an overture which shows off the composer in some of his finest and most varied colours and textures. Listeners unfamiliar with Telemann can comfort themselves as each and every one of the works contained here has expressive charm in abundance and sustained musical interest. No bland and plodding keyboard continuo here. (…) Telemann’s strength and depth in these chamber compositions is never in doubt and with consistently fine playing from the Ensemble Musica Alta Ripa this is certainly a worthy release.

Agostino Steffani (1654-1728) was the most important composer ever to be appointed by the Duchy of Hannover. At the end of the 17th century this noble family embarked on a cultural offensive with the objective of having Duke Ernst August become a prince elector. To this end, the Welph dynasty obtained the services of Steffani, a master choice in itself as his works are still performed to this day in the majestic gardens of Princess Caroline of Monaco and her husband, the current Ernst August of Hannover… (Gerald Fenech)

Andreas Silbermann (16 May 1678 - 16 March 1734) was a German organ builder, who was involved in the construction of 35 organs, mostly in Alsace. Andreas also established the Silbermann family tradition of organ building, training his brother Gottfried and his son Johann Andreas in the profession.

…It's intriguing to imagine how a very slow performance would come off, but Schleiermacher's is a fully persuasive version of a piece that could have a number of very different but valid interpretations. MGD's natural, unprocessed sound is, as is typical for the label, immaculate and vivid.
