Somewhere in Time: Telemannâs âLostâ 12 Fantasias for Solo Viol, 1735 Located in 2014 by Thomas Fritzsch, a copy of Telemannâs self-published 1735 fantasias for viola da gamba survived near Hanover at Ledenburg Palace in the collection of Eleonore von MÃ¼nster (nÃ©e von Grothaus, 1734-1794). Dedicated to musical subscriber Mr. Pierre Chaunell (1703-1789) and published in a period when the viol was already out of fashion in Europe, Telemannâs unique fantasias encompass a plethora of forms - both old and new, inspired by the Polish and Moravian music of his early career, filled with techniques spanning fugal writing to elements of the rondo and concerto, straddling the High Baroque and the galant. For Early Music Americaâs Early Music Month 2017, join New Comma Baroqueâs Phillip Serna as we explore Telemannâs self-published 1735 fantasias, the last great collection of virtuoso unaccompanied music for viola da gamba - missing since the 18th century!
