with Dorothee Mields & The Gentleman’s Band (SONY/dhm, March 2014).

On his CD “Inspired by Song”, South African recorder player Stefan Temmingh is focusing on English songs. He has invited Dorothee Mields, one of the leading baroque sopranos, to join him and his ensemble. Early baroque tunes, for example Greensleeves, and works by famous composers such as Henry Purcell, John Dowland and Francesco Geminiani were the inspiration for the flamboyant instrumental versions recorded by Stefan Temmingh and his ensemble „The Gentleman’s Band“.

For the very first time, these virtuosic variation cycles for recorder and basso continuo are set in counterpoint with the original well known melodies. The CD also contains several world premiere recordings, e.g. of The King’s Health, a vocal version of La Follia from the 17th century.
