I have collected much of Graener's music over the years, mainly on the CPO label. A pleasant surprise are his chamber works. Not that I expected less as it being well composed, and it is. His music is extremely melodious, a well balance harmony, and sprightly in expression in many places. The music has an aura of magic, presented in warm fluid readings, and a clear toned sound. Elegant ornamentations and a perfectly judged ebb and flow. Faster passagework sounds at ease with this ensemble. The dialogue between the ensemble members is near perfect, and they accentuate the music's intimate side. Never overlooking the moments of delicacy. I am quite taken by this music with a clear emotional expression and tenderness.
The recording is excellent, and the performance first rate.
