Notes and Editorial Reviews

Another reason to take a look into the Glossa Cabinet series comes with the reappearance of Marcello Gatti’s delightful interpretation of transverse flute Sonatas by Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (son number 9 of JS), who worked in the courtly surroundings of Bückeburg in central Germany in the last part of the 18th century. These sonatas were composed around the time of JCF’s visit to see his brother Johann Christian in London in 1778 and combine the Italian galante style with the sensitivity of the Empfindsamer Stil. Cellist Giovanna Barbati joins for a Trio in D major (from the middle of the 1780s).

REVIEW:

The performers play period instruments with fine expression. The recording
Read more was made in a church in Pisa, and the sound has a wonderful presence.
