Georg Philip Telemann 12 Fantasies for Solo Viola

By Holger Arnold

In order to realize the cycle on the viola, Ori Kam has transposed it downwards by a fifth, the score has otherwise been left unchanged. The effect is astonishing, the sound is warmer and more voluminous in relation to the violin and brings completely new dimensions to the music. An impression that is based above all on the phenomenal interpretation. Kam's celebration of sound sophistication and culture is sensational! Coupled with his uncanny secure rhythmical instinct, his exuberant, but never uncontrolled sovereign stunning musicality and technique he achieves an exemplary recording of the highest class.
