high baroque or preclassical? 22 Aug. 2012
By neasden oz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This collection comes with an interesting blurb pointing to the doubtful provenance of the works. However, it also, in effect, says, "who cares?"
The second work, a 24 minute concerto, is so stylistically different from the other works, ostensibly by one or other, or even both of the Graun Brothers, to suggest that it is by someone other.
The blurbist suggests the little known Graupner;(up with whose music I have yet to catch!)

All the works...a symphony by the older Graun, the afore-mentioned concerto for violin and viola, a bassooon concerto and the flute concerti, are charming works with limpid medoldies, strong dynamics, and all fall into the not often enough explored musical space between the High Baroque and so called Classical. I never really grocked these terms, as being utterly arbitrary, and as if the composers thought of their work in such restrictive ways. All music should be transitional in some sense. Great music looks back, and forwards.

The performances are very good, and the works highly entertaining, but I take issue with the recording, which often seems lifeless.The brass is often strident, overwhelming the strings. Overall, the strings seem mixed well back.

Fortunately, the music is worthwhile.
Worth a listen if one wants something other than gravitas or spectacle, in a musical sense, though fairy music it is not.
