Who is Christoph Graupner, you ask? Well, he was born two years before Johann Sebastian Bach and was even a pupil at the celebrated Thomasschule in Leipzig (before Bach took it over), studying under the then-Kapellmeister, Kuhnau. He went to law school but abandoned that for music, moving to Hamburg where he became friends with Telemann. He ultimately wound up in Darmstadt where he was director of the Hofkapelle and where he remained the rest of his life. He is primarily known as a composer of operas as well as choral and orchestral music. His keyboard music has not been widely known - more's the pity! - until the present artist, Geneviève Soly, a Montreal harpsichordist and musicologist, found and began recording it (along with some of his chamber music). This is, I believe, the eighth CD she has recorded either as soloist or as chamber musician. I've reviewed a couple of the earlier harpsichord CDs and one chamber CD and have been consistently delighted with both the music and the performances.

This CD contains three harpsichord partitas (suites): A minor (GWV 150, ca. 1720), E major (a combination work: GWV 106 [1718] & GWV 109 [1722]) and in C major (another combination work with movements from GWV 109 [ca. 1720] and GWV 126 [1722]). The latter two works were incomplete as they stood and Soly put several movements together to make complete suites. (She even candidly admits that she included some movements simply because 'I liked them ... and wanted to record them!'). Soly wrote the excellent booklet notes and they are quite informative, even scholarly. All that, though, is no matter if one simply sits back and listens to the various movements.

I own the full set of Graupner partitas and they are central to my collection of great harpsichord music. Equal to Bach, Handel, and the other greats. I can vouch for their greatness by urging you to sample this Volume first or any other volume. Soly is super.
