The “lessons” published every two weeks in Telemann’s music periodical “ Der getreue Meister” (The Faithful Music Master) are the first known examples of musical pieces in instalments. Telemann thus satisfied the needs of the music-loving public by constantly offering new pieces for different instrumental combinations for domestic music making. This book of Sonatas and other little pieces gives us a good idea of the variety that Telemann was aiming for his “Music Master”: next to a sonata conceived expressly for oboe, there are pieces that can be played on various melody instruments as well.
A collection that is guaranteed to delight many different instrumentalists.
