Bach, Telemann, Fasch and Graupner were all finalists for the same job in Leipzig. The post went to Bach, but Telemann’s epic twelfth Paris Quartet, dazzling lute and recorder concertos by Fasch, a bubbly suite by Graupner and Bach’s elegaic Harpsichord Concerto in F Minor make compelling cases in support of all four of these composers.

Recorder Concerto in F, FWV L:F-deest — Johann Friedrich Fasch (US premiere)*
Entrata in G, GWV 453 — Christoph Graupner (modern premiere)
Harpsichord Concerto in F Minor, BWV 1056 — Johann Sebastian Bach
Lute Concerto in D Minor, FWV L:d1 — Fasch*
“Paris” Quartet XII in E Minor, TWV 43:e4 — Georg Philipp Telemann

* Part of our live-in-concert, modern premiere recording for Chandos to be released in 2012.
