Partita GWV 133 — Christoph Graupner // Fernando De Luca, Harpsichord

You might have surmised by now that I love the harpsichord.  In fact, I can’t think of a better way to start out my day.

This partita is by Christoph Graupner.  He was a contemporary of Bach; and, like Bach, he was a very prolific composer.  For a number of reasons his music was neglected, but it wasn’t because of the quality.  It is of a consistently high level and in the midst of a revival, it appears.
