Telemann, Twelve Fantasias for Viola da Gamba solo, TWV 40:26-37
For more than two hundred years, Telemann's unique Fantasias for solo viol remained hidden from the general public until a copy of the original 1735 print was recently discovered in the Ledenburg Collection. We are very happy to be able to make them accessible now to all gambists, and are certain that these Fantasias will soon belong to the standard repertoire of all friends of the viola da gamba. In addition to a preface by Carsten Lange and Thomas Fritzsch, our edition includes a complete facsimile and a modern edition for practical music-making.
