Graupner’s Multifaceted Tone Colours
The uncommonly productive Christoph Graupner composed the five Epiphany cantatas selected for this recording between 1730 and December 1753, when he was no longer practicing the art of opera composition. The author of the texts, Graupner’s brother-in-law Johann Conrad Lichtenberg, was a Darmstadt pastor and Lutheran superintendent and between 1719 and 1743 wrote some 1,500 cantata texts for the composer’s highly imaginative settings. Two criteria operated during the selection process for this recording: one was the Epiphany theme, and the other was the extraordinary instrumentation serving to exemplify the multifaceted tone colours in Graupner’s music. It is above all in the arias that he succeeded in exploiting the musical potential offered by the various instruments – though never neglecting the voice part. Many of his cantatas even today lie slumbering in the archives and continue to await rediscovery.
