Johann Friedrich Fasch was highly esteemed during his lifetime, then long forgotten. Telemann performed his cantatas, and Johann Sebastian Bach copied the opulently scored orchestral suites for his Leipzig collegium musicum. Fasch's importance as a forerunner of Classicism is apparent in these works. The development supersedes fugal technique. Georg Philipp Telemann was no less innovative. His concertos are multicolored and put vocal quality before virtuosity. He sought the public and strived for clarity, fostered concert life, was rooted in his age and years ahead of his time compositionally. Antonio Vivaldi exerted even more influence on the music of his day. Stylistic power, motivic combination, a taste for striking sound effects, and fascinating instrumental scoring are associated with his name.
