Joseph Haydn: Trios (Op. 38) for flute, violin & cello
Greg Dikmans (baroque flute), Lucinda Moon (baroque violin) & Hilary Kleinig (baroque cello)
Elder Perspectives Series (Adelaide)
Rarely heard gems of the early-Classical chamber music repertoire
Haydn’s 6 Divertimentos a 3 were first published in London in 1784 by William Forster, a dealer and violin maker who purchased more than 120 compositions by Haydn. They are chamber works of high quality and charm which bear out fully Haydn’s comment that “in instrumental music my pure musical fantasies are usually given free reign”.
The Divertimento (which in Italian means amusement or recreation), along with the Cassation and Serenade, played an important role in the social and musical life of the middle classes in the second half of the 18th-century, particularly in South Germany and Austria.

Ngeringa Arts Concerts Series (Mt Barker, SA)
Works by Telemann, Boismortier, Dornel and Chéron
Telemann made a triumphant visit to Paris in 1737. He was at the height of his fame in Germany, but still lacked international recognition and to achieve that he had to succeed in Paris. For this visit he composed his justly famous Paris Quartets. He realised his music had to adapt itself to the taste of the Paris salons and concerts, as well as flatter the musicians who performed it and provide enough originality to keep the interest of the quickly satiated society. With these Nouveuax Quatuors Telemann not only fulfilled these aims, but also produced some of the finest chamber music written in Europe in the first half of the 18th century.
Telemann’s Paris Quartet in D major will be complemented by works by celebrated French musicians of the time.
