Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cellist Guy Fishman releases a follow up to his critically acclaimed Vivaldi Concertos on Olde Focus with this recording of the concerti of C.P.E. Bach. Along with his colleagues from the Handel and Haydn Society, Fishman's performance underscores the angularity, unpredictability, and most of all unique creativity of this music by J.S. Bach's unconventional son. Guy Fishman is the principal cellist of the Handel and Haydn Society, with which he made his Symphony Hall solo debut in 2005. He is in demand as an early music specialist in the United States and in Europe, performing in recital with some of the biggest names on the early music and classical scenes. His playing has been praised as “plangent” by the Boston Globe, “electrifying” by Read more the New York Times, and “beautiful… noble” by the Boston Herald. The Boston Musical Intelligencer related that in a performance of Haydn’s C major concerto “… I heard greater depth in this work than I have in quite some time.” He plays a rare cello made in Rome in 1704 by David Tecchler.
