AN INTELLIGENT NATURALLY PHRASED AND HIGHLY MUSICAL TELEMANN TRAVERSAL
“Telemann’s Fantasies were clearly composed for the edification and pleasure of flautists, but they also delight the listener – especially when the performances are as warmly communicative as these.
Laurel Zucker emphasizes the element of fantasy suggested in the music’s title through the judicious use of rubato, thoughtful and varied articulation, and stylish, expressive ornamentation.
She also delineates the individual character of each fantasy, making the serene melody of No. 4 into a lovely little aria, for example, and finding pomp in the dotted rhythms of No. 7. It’s actually a joy to listen to the entire set in one sitting. Her wide toal palette is an enhancement.
Certainly the intelligence and naturalness of her phrasing – also a highlight of her recording of Bach Sonatas (US,1/02) – are beyond reproach.”
