Format:Audio CD
The story of how the music on this disc and its immediate predecessor came to be recorded is one of some musicological excitement. Geneviève Soly, a harpsichordist from Montréal, took a year off from performing and went nosing around music libraries looking for music to play. At the Yale University library she found an old collection of eight partitas for harpsichord by Christoph Graupner (1683-1760) that had been published from manuscript in Darmstadt in 1918 and then promptly forgotten about. It happens that Graupner was so modest that he never allowed a portrait to be made and turned down the job that Bach eventually got in Leipzig because his then-employer, the Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt asked him to do so; he spent the rest of his life in that job. He also instructed his family to burn his voluminous manuscripts upon his death but the City of Darmstadt, where he had been court composer for over fifty years, challenged this in the courts and, after a legal battle of almost 60 years, they won the rights to the manuscripts which have been preserved there. A small publication of Graupner works was made in the early 1900s but didn't attract much attention. And otherwise he was pretty well unknown in modern times. This recording , Volume II of a projected series that will comprise all these partitas, is a world première of what, I believe, is world-class music. [I am indebted to Barry Brenesal, who interviewed Ms. Soly for Fanfare recently, for much of this information.]
Clearly, as with his generation of composers--Bach, Handel, Telemann and Scarlatti; what a generations THAT was!--he was aware of stylistic trends throughout Europe. Indeed, if I had not known the provenance of these pieces I would have thought they were written by a French composer.
