Under the direction of Andreas Köhs at the Church of the Three Kings, they perform in various instrumental configurations and are oriented toward historical performance practice, offering interpretations of great vitality and character. Their name is taken from the composer Georg Philipp Telemann, who was music director in Frankfurt am Main from 1712 to 1721 and did much to shape the musical life of that city during those years.
