Syrinx
Making their Resonus Classics debut is period wind ensemble Syrinx with a programme of works by Georg Philipp Telemann.

Revealing a fascinating blend of styles, Telemann’s wind music is an eclectic mix of perfectly balanced Baroque dances, full-blown orchestral overtures and character pieces exemplified by the rustic miniature of Les Paysans and the gentle slumber of muted double-reeds in Le Someil.

'Telemann’s voracious appetite for dance music of all styles, and the Syrinx ensemble’s perky playing, ensure endless pleasure in rarely heard pieces.'
The Sunday Times

'Telemann’s voracious appetite for dance music of all styles, and the Syrinx ensemble’s perky playing, ensure endless pleasure in rarely heard pieces.'
The Sunday Times

'Syrinx’s playing is wonderfully alert to the polish, colour and personality of these pieces. This was essentially entertainment music, and Syrinx shows what a sophisticated entertainer Telemann was.'
Daily Telegraph

'It will surprise no-one that Telemann manages to delight the ear with what might seem like limited resources. The blend of double reeds and horns (especially oboes d’amore and horns!) is gorgeous, especially when recorded in such a generous but not over-resonant acoustic. The individual movements of the suites take on a character of their own, with the composer’s mischievous sense of humour never far from the surface (just listen to La Grimace and I defy you not to smile…)'
Early Music Review

'Syrinx, a UK-based ensemble making their recording debut, offer clean, well-judged and [...] attractive performances of the 30 short movements that make up these five pieces [...] nice to be introduced to this elegant wind music'
Gramophone

'[...] the wind band arrangements are very enjoyable when they are as well performed and recorded as this.'
MusicWeb International

'There are some extraordinary sounds [...] The players’ attention to detail of phrasing and articulation is exemplary.'
Andrew Benson-Wilson
