The Greatest Art Is To Make Money

… is the title of one of the songs from Georg Philipp Telemann’s “Singe-, Spiel- und Generalbassübungen” from 1733. The other themes of happiness, love, women, men, worries and contentment also seem surprisingly contemporary. The ensemble Cambiamento under the direction of Jürgen Beyer has been inspired by this topicality and has rearranged some of the songs.
The musicians, who feel at home in both baroque music and jazz, combine both styles in their new interpretations in an entertaining and amusing way.

The Ensemble:

The ensemble was founded on the occasion of the restoration of the Ribbeck altar of the village church of Groß Glienicke in 2013. In this context the first CD “I love art and fresh courage” – Music from German lands arose around 1680. The focus is on the interpretation of works of the early Baroque, including rarely played pieces, new discoveries and own arrangements. Thereby consciously cross-stylistic and cross-genre challenges are sought, so in the “Baroque meets Jazz” project with new arrangements of the songs from the “Singe-, playing and basso continuo exercises” by G. Ph. Telemann. The instrumentations of the ensemble are thereby adapted to the respective projects.
