A major figure of 18th century musical Europe, Telemann enjoyed in his time more fame and renown than even the great J.S. Bach. This great master of instrumental music, open to French and Italian influences as well as the new galant style that flourished in Germany, succeeded, especially in his chamber music, in creating a charming synthesis of European styles at the crossroads between Baroque and Classicism.
