The present richly enjoyable CD contains five trios by Johann Gottlieb and Carl Heinrich. In some areas of the brothers’ work it is near enough impossible to know who wrote what with any certainty – as Grove puts it “problems of attribution, chronology and biographical detail remain”. Manuscript attributions usually refer simply to ‘Graun’.
The first thing to stress is that one should not be put off by such problems – the music is delightful and inventive. This issue from CPO benefits from some scholarly notes by Ludger Rémy, who points out the complexities of the manuscript tradition where these works are concerned. These performances are based on manuscript copies (none of them in the composer(s) own hand) preserved in the State and University Library of Saxony, in Dresden.
All but GraunWV Cv:XV:100 are in three movements (slow-fast-fast); the exception has four movements: adagio, allegro, affetuoso, allegro. The fast movements bubble effervescently and are never short on ideas; the slow movements are graceful and often full of feeling. There’s a good deal of variety, many changes of pace and dynamics and a few more-or-less unexpected twists and turns.
This is sophisticated chamber music and, though one hears affinities with, say, Corelli and even C.P.E. Bach, the music has a distinctive character of its own. It gets fine performances from Les Amis de Philippe, full of both subtlety and discipline. The recorded sound captures the intimate interplay of the ensemble very satisfactorily. I, for one, would very much like to hear more of the Grauns’ chamber music.
