Description: First recordings of these chamber works which are undated and could have been written any time during Graun's last 30 years. Empfindsamkeit, galant and the late German baroque all appear in the stylistic mix and one might point out the piece with obbligato harpsichord as especially bizarre and overwrought in its dark emotional content (a work so forward-looking that it was attributed to Graun's student W.F. Bach). Les Récréations.
