Telemann - Complete Orchestral Suites, vol. 1 (2008)

Telemann

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

Pavel Serbin

Georg Philipp Telemann wrote more than one hundred orchestral suites covering nearly the entire period he was active as a composer, from 1705 to 1765. Like his contemporaries, Telemann used the French word ‘ouverture’ for these works. At that period the language used to name a musical composition often indicated the style in which it was written. If the Italian word ‘concerto’ featured on the title page, the soloist could probably expect virtuoso passages; if the designation was French, as with the orchestral suites, tempos associated with the ‘courante’ and ‘passepied’ or the technique of ‘notes inégales’ were appropriate.
The overture originated in mid-17th century France. The first use of the genre was as an introduction to acts of Jean-Baptiste Lully’s court ballets (e.g. Alcidiane et Polexandre, 1658). Early French overtures were comprised of just two parts: a slow section, usually written in chord texture, and a fast fugue. Later they generally had a slow third part. The acts of a ballet, in their turn, represented suites from the overture and a series of dances.

Pratum Integrum Orchestra

The Pratum Integrum orchestra performs with authentic instruments. The Latin name translates as ‘unmown meadow’ and refers to their broad-ranging repertoire from the Baroque and Classical periods, about which little is known to this day. This is the only orchestra in Russia in which all the groups of historic instruments are represented: strings, wind and percussion, and moreover all the instruments were made in the 18th to 19th centuries or copied from period examples. Pratum Integrum’s performances are a careful recreation using original treatises, primary sources and eye-witness accounts by contemporaries. 
The orchestra was established in Moscow in 2003 with sponsorship from the company Essential Music, immediately gaining a reputation as an extraordinary, outstanding and highly professional group of musicians with a predilection for fast tempos and vivid, fresh interpretations. 

Pavel Serbin

Pavel Serbin plays the cello and viola da gamba. He is also a teacher at the Moscow Conservatoire, a founder of the ensemble A la Russe and both soloist and artistic director of the orchestra Pratum Integrum. Born in Moscow in 1978, he graduated from the Gnessin Music School (studied with Vera Birina) and the Moscow Conservatoire (among his teachers: professors Dmitry Miller – violoncello, Alexander Rudin – chamber music, Alexander Galkovsky – quartet). He has also attended classes at the Royal Academy of Music in The Hague taught by Jaap ter Linden (Baroque cello) and Wieland Kuijken (viola da gamba). Serbin has won prizes at the Bruges Early Music Competition (1999, as part of the Gassenhauer Trio) and the competitions Premio Bonporti and Van Wassenaar (2000, in a duet with Olga Martynova). His dissertation was on cello music composed in Russia from the late 18th to early 19th centuries.
