* Katia and Marielle Labèque throw themselves into the works with the verve and enthusiasm that are so typical of them, demonstrating symbiotic synchrony and facile technique.
* A ided and abetted by one of the leading Italian ensembles that specializes in period performing practice, Il Giardino Armonico.
* With its unmistakable sound Il Giardino Armonico is one of today's most notable Baroque ensembles. Colourful, individualistic and stylish, it has won an enthusiastic international following and truly excels in performing Baroque music for a 21st century audience.
* This eclectic performance brings together a wide variety of music from three different composers - recorded in the attractive Musikverein in Vienna, it combines J.S Bach, his most famous son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, and Antonio Vivaldi in an evening of attractive music.
* One of the unique elements of this performance is the use of fortepianos for Bach's keyboard concertos. This instrument, which Bach undoubtedly knew, and probably owned, is rarely played with his music, yet the sound it offers is far more interesting than a modern piano.
* State-of-the-art quality.
