  • Note: Georg Philipp Telemann (14 March 1681 – 25 June 1767) was a German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. Almost completely self-taught in music, he became a composer against his family's wishes. After studying in Magdeburg, Zellerfeld, and Hildesheim, Telemann entered the University of Leipzig to study law, but eventually settled on a career in music. He held important positions in Leipzig, Sorau, Eisenach, and Frankfurt before settling in Hamburg in 1721, where he became musical director of the city's five main churches. While Telemann's career prospered, his personal life was always troubled: his first wife died only a few months after their marriage, and his second wife had extramarital affairs and accumulated a large gambling debt before leaving Telemann. In Hamburg in 1732-3 Telemann published three books of fantasias for harpsichord (TWV 33:1-36). The first and third books are in the Italian style, the second in the French. They are early Rococo miniatures, with light, clear-textured writing. Each book contains twelve fantasias. The present demo with RetroMagix Harpsichord corresponds to the Fantasia No.3 in E major TWV 33:3.
