The Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood.
Three delightful symphonies. I do not want to repeat myself in praising it in the same terms as the CD'S before, so I single out a few movements that stuck with me for quite some time. First of all the second and third movement of No. 28, and secondly the third movement of No 29, and its ravishing Finale. Tempi's are consistently fast and furious, without Hogwood losing his grip on the proceedings.
Sound is excellent. Recommended.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
