The dazzling spirit and originality of Christoph Graupnerís music receives little attention today. Along with the Mannheimer Hofkapelle Baroque Orchestra under the conductor Florian Heyerick and with top soloists, we at CPO have committed ourselves to changing these circumstances. Vol.1, Das Leiden Jesu, presents recordings of three Passion cantatas by Graupner. What we hear is a composer of the late Baroque who (like his friend Telemann) was on a constant quest for new forms of expression - the key to his personal style is found in his delight in experimentation and his individual instrumentation technique.
