Nouveaux Quatuors en Six Suites II for Flute, Violin, Viola da Gamba or Violoncello and Basso Continuo "Paris Quartets".
Quartets 4-6 (B minor, A major, E minor) TWV 43: h2, A3, e4.
Telemann’s chamber music is historically unique in its range of instrumental settings. From his huge output these new editions present the six quartets for Flute, Violin, Viola da Gamba or Violoncello and Basso Continuo that he wrote in Paris in the 1730s.
Published with the title Nouveaux Quatuors en Six Suites by Le Clerc in Paris in 1738, these six pieces are suites with various sequences of movements, each introduced by a prelude.
Here Telemann shows himself committed to the French style. The works are of special interest not only for their high quality but also because of the variable scoring of the third part for Viola da Gamba or Violoncello.
Our edition consists of a full score with preface (German/English) and separate instrumental parts including a Keyboard with figured bass.
