Notes & Reviews:

The Finnish Baroque Orchestra’s second release of Christoph Graupner’s (1683–1760) music continues to reveal delightful masterpieces by this famed-in-his-day Baroque master. Possessing a unique personal style of writing music and often favoring certain rarer instruments in his works, Graupner’s immense catalogue contains over 2,000 works varying from orchestral works to cantatas, concertos and chamber music. The FBO plays music from the 17th c. to the early Romantic era. It also seeks novel perspectives on early instruments by performing new music on Baroque instruments.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The Finnish Baroque Orchestra sounds as exciting playing trios as they do orchestral suites. The musicians demonstrate refinement in every turn of phrase - and Graupner's music is full of refinements (what a great composer). One should mention that Kaakininen-Pilch also plays one of the solo violin parts - Hannu Vasara plays the other - in the Trios in C minor and E, and both violinists sound brilliant. Notes are in English.
