Telemann's La Caccia (The Hunt) is taken from his concerto for violin inF major.It depicts a scene that, in his lifetime, was a popular subject for artists and composers. Hunting, whether of the deer, the fox or the wild boar was, throughout Europe, regarded as an activity both necessar y - ridding the country-side of annoying wild animals and acquiring gamefor food, and fashionable - an opportunity for the gentry to exhibit th eir horses, rich clothing and servants, and to indulge in danger, daringand disturbance through the fields and forests. This musical picture of a hunt starts at dawn (misty, peaceful, dew-laden) the sun gradually rises, a church-bell is heard and the birds start twittering. And then the hunt is up, a hunting-horn starts it off, and we hear the galloping horses, the speed, excitement and noise, the horn sounding from right andleft, and then bringing the hunt - and the piece - to a close.
