« And if the performer feels joy, you will fell pleasure ». This is how TELEMANN concluded his advice to young composers in his autobiography. Indeed, never before perhaps has a composer given so much to instrumentalists, writing an incalculable number of pieces for a whole variety of ensembles, throughout a life characterised by an almost unbelievable facility combined with a rare capacity for hard work.

Let us therefore reach out towards the happiness this music gives us, the joy of playing and the composer's pleasure. Did not Telemann himself say, « the notes sought me out more than I sought them » ?
