Notes and Editorial Reviews

It was Christoph Graupner who was selected as the Thomaskantor in Leipzig after Johannes Kuhnau, and it was only the fact that Graupner’s patron in Darmstadt did not let him go that Johann Sebastian Bach got the job! In fact Graupner was the more famous and more “modern” composer during those years, yet history almost forgot him for more than two centuries – even having composed five times as many cantatas as Bach. An important and highly praised step in the re-discovery or Graupner’s music was already presented by the soprano Miriam Feuersinger and her ECHO Klassik awarded debut release on Christophorus together with the Capricornus Consort Basel. She is now joined by countertenor Franz Vitzthum for a new album of duo cantatas. This is Read more music of great depth, with the two voices blending so well that sometimes they seem just one.
