The overture-suite enjoyed a great popularity, especially in Germany during the first half of the 18th century in particular Bach’s so-called 'Orchestral Suites'. While the opening overture was associated with clear expectations of form, the composer was relatively free in the selection and sequence of the following movements. Georg Philipp Telemann put this into practice creatively in a diverse selection of overture-suites, the titles of which allude humorously to characters and human behaviors, as well as contemporary events and discussions: 'La Bizarre', 'La Changeante' or 'Des nations anciens et modernes'. The selection on this recording offers a wonderful insight into the veritable cosmos of Telemann’s overture-suites.
