Description: Titled “The Autograph Scores”, this program contains one-third of the 18 surviving scores in Telemann’s hand. Only the Divertimento is listed as a premiere recording but I’d check my collection regarding the others. Three of them are the work of the 85-year-old composer, written for the name-day of the Landgrave of Darmstadt, all of which use pairs of horns and have plenty of hunting action. And the Concert en Ouverture is a combination overture-suite and violin concerto, probably from the late 1730s. Collegium Musicum 90; Simon Standage.
