Notes and Editorial Reviews

This program explores the last years of the life of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. A composer placed in the dual position of heir, by the shadow of his father Johann Sebastian, and visionary by his own personality, he finds himself at the end of his life witnessing the emergence of classicism, when he is already anticipating romanticism. For Mathieu Dupouy, this album is a return to CPE Bach, whom he has spent much time recording. He interprets the music on a pianoforte ideal for the historical accuracy of these pieces, restoring all their power and immediacy. Mathieu Dupouy studied at the CNSM of Paris with Christophe Rousset and obtained the first harpsichord and basso continuo awards unanimously. His repertoire is not limited to Baroque Read more music, but frequently extends to contemporary creations. He also plays in different ensembles and orchestras. His prior albums have all received praise from the specialized press. Read less
