Georg Philipp Telemann at Vielklang

Georg Philipp Telemann is undoubtedly one of the great composers of the 18th century. Long underestimated in comparison to Bach, his compositions are now considered masterful products of a truly European spirit. As a polyglot, internationally active networker, equally at home in the various styles of musical high baroque, Telemann is the prototype of mixed, gallant taste.

and Legacy

Across his extensive lifespan, Telemann seamlessly transitioned into the realm of early classical music, crafting poignant compositions well into his advanced years. This journey underscores Telemann's lasting imprint on musical history, highlighting his ability to evolve and resonate within the dynamic landscape of his era.


A core aspect of Telemann's music - similar to Haydn's - is a relaxed humor as an expression of his positive world view. His orchestral and chamber music works are inexhaustible for flutes, oboe, violin, viola, cello, gamba, harpsichord, and his operas and cantatas characteristically showcase the human voice.


The performance of his music is always smooth and idiomatic. His orchestral and chamber music works are inexhaustible for flutes, oboe, violin, viola, cello, gamba, harpsichord, and his operas and cantatas characteristically showcase the human voice.


Telemann's huge oeuvre is ideal terrain for the Vielklang 2024 master class. Diversity, appreciation, internationality, and belief in the positive power of music are, so to speak, a reflection of the idea of the master classes in Tübingen in Telemann's enlightened worldview.
