I love this music for wind instruments, and this cd fulfills all wishes one could possibly have. The instruments sound warm, thus the music is really embracing you. The composers on this disc were at the top of their game when they penned down this wonderful evocative compositions, for they are all well written, and in which technical demands are high. A colourful sonority infuses them with resonant warmth. They navigated rapidly and suavely through the music. Many a time there is joyful exuberance and a generosity in the way they present it. The poise and dexterity with which the soloists play has an positive effect in understanding the beautiful harmonies.
It is well recorded.

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