After working his way around various cities in Germany, Telemann settled in Hamburg where he remained for the rest of his life. His music was in constant demand for all kinds of occasions. Donald Macleod introduces the festive music written for the annual banquet of the civic guard, and highlights from a work which started life as a comic interlude in a serious opera.
