Telemann's Paris Telemann: Selection from the Paris Quartets
Louis-Gabriel Guillemain: Sonates en quatuors ou conversations galantes

2017 is a 'Telemann year', marking the 250th anniversary of his death.

Fantasticus will play their favourite quartets from Telemann's two 'Paris' collections, and Guillemain's quartets from 1743 - music of great beauty, variety of colours and textures, and outright virtuosity.

Fantasticus, usually a trio, are delighted to be working with veteran traverso player and early music hero Wilbert Hazelzet to bring you this unique musical experience. Wilbert is an original member of Musica Antiqua Koln and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.

Tickets £26
