The 55th Annual Viola da Gamba Society of America Conclave – Completing Telemann’s ‘Lost’ 12 Fantasias for Solo Viol, 1735

Located in 2014, a copy of Telemann’s self-published 1735 fantasias for viola da gamba survived near Hanover at Ledenburg Palace in the collection of Eleonore von Münster. Dedicated to musical subscriber Mr. Pierre Chaunell (1703-1789), Telemann’s unique fantasias encompass a plethora of forms – both old and new, inspired by the Polish and Moravian music of his early career, filled with techniques spanning fugal writing to elements of the rondo and concerto, straddling the High Baroque and the galant. Join gambists Sarah Cunningham, Roland Hutchinson, John Moran, Alice Robbins, Phillip Serna, Lisa Terry & James Williamson as the VdGSA commemorates the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death with the unaccompanied viol fantasias nos. 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 & 11!
