Concerto in E Minor
for Piccolo, Flute, and Chamber Orchestra (or Piano), TWV 52:e1
Georg Philipp Telemann (composer), Zart Dombourian-Eby (arranger), Valerie Shields (arranger)
Composed by Telemann as a double concerto for recorder and transverse flute, Zart Dombourian-Eby’s new edition is prepared for piccolo, flute, and piano — remaining compatible with available orchestral editions, and respectfully faithful to Telemann’s detailed nuances. Cast in the slow-fast, slow-fast four-movement mold typical of Baroque concert works, the Concerto in E minor is at once among the most beautiful and exhilarating works of Telemann’s formidable output.
