It’s the Telemann-Year! Support our production of a Live-DVD to celebrate the fascinating composer Georg Philipp Telemann. 2017 marks already the 250th anniversary of his passing, but his music still has the power to electrify people of all ages. Of course, you can experience this best visiting a concert. For all those who don’t have the possibility or want to enjoy Telemann’s music “in concert” at home we would like to produce this DVD.

What is this project all about?

This DVD will be our first release with a label and features three very different works by Georg Philipp Telemann. We recorded those during the last two years in our concert series in Bremen. Part of the videos have already been released (you can find them here and here ), part of them will only be available on this DVD. All of the material will be re-engineered for highest possible sound and image quality.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Our project is for all

  • music lovers
  • fans of colourful orchestral music
  • lovers of atmospheric DVD nights on your couch
  • who want to discover the works of George Philipp Telemann
  • who are especially interested in so called „Early Music“ and historical performance practice
  • those who would love to support a young orchestra bringing on the way their first release with an official label

Why would you support this project?

We’re completely fascinated by Telemann’s music for its sheer unbelievable richness of colours. His works contain so many different styles, ingenious ideas and also funny moments. This is a joy for us to play and also the audience of our concerts is amazed by the vibrancy of his style. In the past we therefore received many requests for a production focusing on Telemann.
This is why we now – with your most appreciated support – would love to produce our first Live-DVD, bringing Telemann to your living room.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

With your support we can hand the pre-produced material to our partners Tobias Hentze and our Bremen-based label Arcantus and take the next step to postproduction. This contains post-editing of sound and image, graphic work, pressing and all the preparations for the subsequent distribution.
4% are payed as usual transaction fee, another 3% go to Startnext as our contribution.
Thanks so much to everybody for your support!!

Who are the people behind the project?

We are the Bremer Barockorchester and have been playing in this formation for about 2,5 years. Our ensemble members hail from countries such as Colmbia, Portugal, Italy, Japan, Estonia, Australia, Chile, France, Germany or Hungary. We all are professional freelance musicians specializing in historical performance practice. The artistic director is colombian cellist Néstor Fabián Cortés Garzón. In our concerts we want to convey our fascination for the music of the Baroque era to show the audience that “Early” music is completely up-tp-date and alive.
