Notes and Editorial Reviews

When people spoke of the 'great Bach' during the 18th century, they were not referring to Johann Sebastian but to his son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, one of the chief representatives of the Empfindsamer Stil (Sensitive Style). He was in the service of Frederick the Great for over 30 years as harpsichordist and chamber musician. Bach's compositions, however, were not particularly appreciated at the rather conservative court - the works of Quantz or the Graun brothers met with greater favour there. Thus Bach composed primarily for the academies in the considerably more open-minded Berlin salons of the nobility and the bourgeoisie. Although works for keyboard instruments are the main focus of his production, over the course of his long career he Read more also wrote more than 50 instrumental concertos in which the entire expressive range of his original music can also be clearly perceived. Just in time for the composer's 300th birthday, Il gardellino is presenting a small selection of these on this CD. Alongside the Cello Concerto, H. 432 and the Oboe Concerto, H.466, we can also hear the Flute Concerto, H.482/1, a work that was rediscovered in Kiev as recently as 2001. Read less
