Telemann in Paris

Telemann’s Paris Quartets rank among his most famous compositions. These gems share the program with works by “Couperin the Great,” Telemann’s Parisian contemporary. Janet See, whose name is synonymous world-wide with the baroque flute, celebrates her 30th year with PBO by leading this intimate showcase of music for flute, harpsichord, cello, and gamba.

Janet See is “the flutist of choice in baroque repertoire.
— Seattle Times
