Sunday Synth Jam: In this video, synthesist Kris Lennox performs Section 1 from Telemann’s Fantasia #4 in Bb (originally for solo flute) on a Vermona ’14 keyboard synthesizer.
Here’s what Lennox has to say about the performance:
The initial plan was to record each Fantasia as a single piece, but each section is strong enough to act as a standalone recording. That, plus each section suits a new synth tone. Great pieces, great composer.
The solo flute repertoire is perhaps one of the best ways to make the most of a monosynth – no need for layering etc. And with Telemann, the purity of Baroque melodic lines really does shine through.

They made the 6v synth back in the day, but it sounds completely different than the Vermona
