As I look back over the last 25 years of performances and recordings (our debut concert was in London on 13 July 1991) I hope and trust that we still offer our audiences the same enthusiasm and excitement for baroque and classical music that we had in the early days. Concert performances have taken us all over Europe, to the Far East and Australia and throughout North and South America. In recent years our work in the Mission Churches of the Chiquitos and Moxos Indians in Bolivia has had a much wider impact than we could have imagined, promoting a rich cultural heritage that was until 10 years ago almost entirely unknown outside of Bolivia. Our recordings for Channel Classics during this period have not only embraced mainstream baroque music but also given rise to some unique projects, which have demonstrated the mutual trust and respect we have for each other. The opportunity to propose and then record some of these seemingly crazy ideas I have had over the years has further strengthened our relationship with Channel Classics, a record company who trust its artists integrity and take a keen interest in their development and promotion. Over the years the membership of the ensemble has naturally evolved and instead of seeing change as a weakness, I feel strongly that each new member has brought something unique to the ensemble and offered us a refreshing insight into repertoire we have known and loved for years, reinvigorating the ensemble. So to the next 25 years!

Gramophone Review David Vickers :: This attractive mixed programme of Telemann’s works featuring flute or recorder has been designed by Ashley Solomon to celebrate Florilegium’s 25th anniversary. The triple concerto for flute, oboe d’amore and viola d’amore in E major (TWV53:E1) stands out as one of the composer’s most beguiling masterpieces: the limpid opening Andante sounds like a serene evocation of sunrise that anticipates the mature Haydn by several decades; the soloists Solomon, Alexandra Bellamy and Bojan Čičić play with elegant finesse, and also conjure up refined melancholy in an intimately conversational Siciliana.

The double concerto for recorder and viola da gamba in A minor (TWV52:a1) is a charming example of Telemann’s taste for synthesising French and Italian musical styles with elements of Polish folk music; Florilegium’s civilised elegance in the French-style Grave, gently Italianate sway in the Allegro, and Solomon’s duet with gambist Reiko Ichise in the Dolce has pastoral sensitivity. Always played with cultivated refinement, Florilegium provide a thoughtful alternative to the more firmly textured and zestier approach taken by La Stagione Frankfurt (CPO, 2015).

At the heart of the programme is Ihr Völker hört (TWV1:921), a cantata for solo voice and obbligato instrument (played here on the flute by Solomon) that was published in the first instalment of the series Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst (Hamburg, 1725 26). Clare Wilkinson’s softly convivial and articulate singing communicates the cheerful Epiphany text. Solomon takes centre stage in a flute concerto in D major (TWV51: D2), but my ears were drawn equally to the sympathetic continuo-playing of theorbist David Miller and harpsichordist Terence Charlston.

The bigger-scale finale is an F major overture and dance suite (TWV55:F16), dedicated to the Landgrave of Darmstadt and probably written late in Telemann’s long life; in the turbulent Ramellian ‘Tempête’ a pair of horns and bassoon are on thrilling form, so it is a pity that half of the dances could not fit on the disc – but they are available to download.
