Notes & Reviews:

A contemporary of J.S. Bach and Telemann, Johann Christoph Graupner was held in great esteem during his lifetime both as a prolific composer of large vocal and orchestral works and virtuoso harpsichordist, although he is now largely forgotten. With their considerable requirements of virtuosity Graupner's harpsichord suites surpass Handel's in grandeur of conception, and sometimes even match the younger man in musical substance. His immense and flamboyant 'Chaconne in A major' is perhaps the most superb of all the many keyboard works of the genre.

Japanese harpsichordist Naoko Akutagawa performs this charming repertoire with great panache while bringing a vast dynamic and tonal palette to bear on its more subtle aspects. A beguiling disc, full of silky sounds and mercurial writing that should win Graupner many new admirers.
