About the Album

This album is devoted to the complete Fantasias by Georg Philipp Telemann and focuses on a single stylistic universe — and one that is not the least of them. Whilst this repertoire is well known to all flautists, it is also one of the most delicate in several ways. Not only the eloquence and elegance, but also the complexity of the baroque musical syntax, the challenge of performing these pieces on mod- ern instruments, the subtlety of Eric Leleux’s reworking and the enormous labour of the ensemble that his work occasioned all set the Vibrations ensemble a fine sum of challenges and gave rise to an extraordinary collective journey.

2020 and 2021 were years that we cannot fail to remember : they provided us with an opportunity not only to test but also to deepen this project in every sense of the word. These reworked and revisited Fantasias survived the impossibly of meeting to play together, the long and many video discussions to move forwards despite everything, not to mention several months of clandestine rehearsals in a poorly heated theatre. We also felt that we had hit rock bottom more than once: we had the impression that we were going round in circles and that we were losing our motivation because concerts were not possible.

It must be said, however, that our ensemble
has grown from this, we are once again firmly convinced that we can combine our skills and knowledge and explore in our own way the rich and constantly renewed language of Telemann’s Fantasias through Eric Leleux’s reworkings.

The recording sessions took place in the Galaxy Studio in Mol at the beginning of 2022 and were a true delight, inspiring and constructive from start to finish and guided by the ears and enlightened advice of Bert Van Der Wolf and Ewald Demeyere, whom we thank from the bottom of our hearts.

We humbly dare to hope that Georg Philipp Telemann, who was fascinated not only by diversity, flexibility of form and a richness of genres and affects, but also by the timbres of old and new instruments, would have liked to have heard us.
