Dieter Hildebrandt (23 May 1927 – 20 November 2013) was a German Kabarett artist. Hildebrandt was born in Bunzlau, Lower Silesia, Weimar Germany (now Boleslawiec, Poland) where he attended school. In World War II he became a Flakhelfer of the Luftwaffe but after four months was conscripted to the German Wehrmacht, in the same role.
A Baroque violin is a violin set up in the manner of the baroque period of music. The term includes original instruments which have survived unmodified since the Baroque period, as well as later instruments adjusted to the baroque setup, and modern replicas. Baroque violins have become relatively common in recent decades thanks to historically informed performance, with violinists returning to older models of instrument to achieve an authentic sound.
The contrast afforded by Telemann’s interweaving of these two elements is both interesting and effective. The gentle Grave has some lyrical effects as, for example, the limpid dotted quaver motif in which the three melody instruments enter in imitation; but the opening melodic statement, in crotchets, is also attractive, with opportunities for embellishment.
