Graupner: Cantatas, Himmlische Stunden, selige Zei&hellip ~ Miriam Feuersinger
I discovered this on Qobuz then bought the CD. I hadn't been that familiar with Graupner, but that doesn't matter because it's so beautfully performed and recorded. Miriam Feuersinger is new to me, but she has a purity and power to her voice which perfectly suits this high baroque repertoire, aost spine tingling at times. And the period instrumental playing is some of the best I've ever heard, combining warmth, precision and controlled power. Add to that a clear and powerful recording and this is one of the most moving discs I've heard for a long time. I hope to hear her in Bach and other more mainstream repertoire and have been discovering more of J.C. Graun's music.

But over the time I've had it I've struggled with the network connection whether using it wireless or wired to the router. It would persistently refuse to organise Airplay devices, or lose the network entirely or freeze. I had… Read more
