Notes & Reviews:

Brothers Johann Gottlieb and Carl Heinrich Graun were highly influential and popular figures in 18th Century Berlin. As musicians of the court of Frederick the Great, Carl Heinrich became an important figure at the new Berlin Court Opera, while Johann Gottlieb strongly influenced early classicism in general as a violinist and composer. The name Graun was like a seal of approval in those days for zestful music rich in ideas, displayed perfectly by this collection of concertos. Oboist Xenia Löffler, a member of the Akademie fu¨r Alte Musik Berlin, has distinguished herself as a specialist for the North German repertoire of this period.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Xenia Loeffler and the Batzdorf Hofkapelle perform with the dutiful artistry and diligence I'm sure was demanded of musicians at the time. Her tone is lovely and soothing. Overall, whether paying close attention or whether listening to it as background, this music is a real delight, and I hope to hear more from them in the future.
