In their fifth release with Dorian Sono Luminus, Rebel explodes through the speakers with this exciting collection of quartets and quintets by prolific composer Georg Philip Telemann. 

Telemann was probably the most famous and commercially successful composer working in Germany in the first half of the eighteenth century. The consummate stylist, Telemann was always striving to write music that was up-to-the-minute. This helped make him one of the most popular composers of his day and of ours. 

Rebel, led by directors/violinists Jörg Michael Schwarz and Karen Marmer, are known for their vibrant, passionate, and critically acclaimed performances. The ensemble breaths new life into these works with artistic expression and technical precision that can rarely be matched. The lively stage persona of the ensemble leaps out of the recording, connecting with the audience, allowing them to feel more as if they are part of the musical conversation rather than just merely a listener. 

Rebel has been hailed by critics as “sophisticated and beguiling” (The New York Times), saying they are “vital....dashing...with performances that lacked nothing in inwardness, charm, or brilliance, as required” (The Boston Globe) and have been praised for their “astonishingly vital music-making” (Los Angeles Times). This exciting new release is no exception with a performance that is sure to captivate audiences the world over.
