Six Concerti

Hans-Dieter Michatz (recorder) and Monika Kornel (harpsichord) perform Telemann's Six Concerti. This is Telemann at his very best!

We present this rare recording of his masterly compositions for obbligato keyboard and flute, from the collection of ‘6 Concerti and 6 Suites’.

These pieces have stayed ‘under the radar’ of standard performance repertoire for a long time, and this recording realises them in the attractive combination of recorder and harpsichord.

Telemann’s 6 Concerti employ a large variety of musical forms and a typical mix of national styles and affects, allowing for joyful music making between the equally demanding parts.


Hans-Dieter Michatz

Playing modern and baroque flute as well as recorder, Hans-Dieter Michatz has performed and recorded with The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, The Sydney Chamber Orchestra, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, the ABC, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, as well as in Musica Viva Education Project.

Monika Kornel

Monika Kornel studied piano at the Torun State Conservatorium of Music (Poland), where she received her Diploma in Music Performance.

Press quotes

“This new recording is a most welcome addition to the growing body of works restoring (Telemann's) fame and prestige to modern listeners. Hans-Dieter Michatz and Monica Kornel have ... a natural affinity for Telemann's music (and each other). Concerto no 2 is especially beguiling, played as it is on a tenor recorder ... in the beautiful and searching opening largo ... there is ample opportunity for tasteful ornamentation that enhances rather than obscures the tune.” ★★★★

— Robert Small, Fine Music 102.5 Sydney

“Hans-Dieter and Monika have worked together for a long time and one might say that they have got it right - the harpsichord accompaniment is almost background, affectionately melded to the recorder. It is a very pleasant-listening CD, delightful concerti, and polished in both performance and recording.”

Early Music News of NSW

“Michatz’s recorder playing, with his tasteful conception of ornamentation, varied palette of articulations, careful control of dynamics, choice of instruments, and careful attention to ensemble interaction, is a real joy ... Michatz and Kornel provide solid advocacy for Telemann in fair weather and foul, and the programme as a whole casts important new light for me on the varied output of a varied composer.”

— John Weretka, Music Trust e-zine (Loud Mouth)

“Michatz succeeds in transferring the subtle timbres and liveliness of his traverso playing to the lower recorder types. Harpsichordist Monika Kornel, his longstanding colleague from the ‘Sydney Consort’, complements him in an equal and subtle partnership. Remarkably refined Agogics and Articulation make for true listening pleasure. In the constant search for substantial pieces that can be represented on recorder, this is a convincing discovery, and the listener can fully appreciate the interesting, and emotionally charged music.”

— Ulrike Volkhardt, TIBIA Woodwind magazine
