Spotted this new release, which might of interest to Graupner fans as well as fans of Sergio Azzolini:

Graupner is unknown to me as is Sergio Azzolini but I have been listening to the album on Spotify - very enjoyable.

Hi Que - well, I'm not much of a 'cantata collector' (except for JS Bach and just small numbers of a few others), BUT I do love Azzolini - inserted above if one just wants him doing Graupner instrumental bassoon, that recording is superb (review HERE) - Dave :)

I'm listening to Buxtehude again trying to get into the correct "mode" of classical music listening. The one Cantatas CD Naxos has released (Aradia Ensemble / Kevin Mallow).

Very nice CD!  0:)

Graupner is one of the most important contemporaries of Bach alongside with Telemann.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

I checked if I have any recordings of Sergio Azzolini and I do have this one:


That's one disc to re-visit in the near future.  $:)
