The next piece I record will be Telemann's Fantasia #5. The original is in C major--I'll be working from Alan Raph's version, which in Eb major (it's #7 in his book).

This one has some technical challenges in an up-tempo and interval-y second movement. The intervals, which come at you quickly and somewhat relentlessly, are not always intuitive, and some are pretty wide leaps. I'm already pretty comfortable with the first and third movements, so hopefully it won't be too long before I can record this one.

In the next couple of days, while I'm still working this up, I hope to post an analysis of each movement, with some video (barring any technical issues) about Telemann's use of theme-and-variations in the middle movement.
