Notes and Editorial Reviews
Michael Rische is one of a group of musicians that is small even in international terms, who consistently enrich the music scene with their discoveries. This need not imply a contradiction to the standard repertoire. After recording compositions on the notes “B-A-C-H” from Johann Sebastian Bach to the present during the Bach anniversary year of 2000, Michael Rische has been working with growing success on reaffirming the nearly forgotten piano concertos by his son Carl Philipp Emanuel in the music scene. Since 2011, he has been causing a stir with his recordings so far, and the media have been enthusiastically commenting on his recordings, worldwide. During C.P.E. Bach’s anniversary year of 2014, there was a Europe-wide live broadcast by the MDR in Leipzig featuring two of his piano concertos.

Selected excerpts of some previously released volumes inclued in this set:

C.P.E. Bach: Piano Concertos / Rische

: A ClassicsToday 10/10! The performances here are full of the enthusiasm of a new discovery. The minor-key concertos are marked by many of those eruptive gestures that make Emmanuel Bach's music so distinctive: abrupt pauses, strongly accented rhythms, tangy dissonance, and huge intervallic leaps. This is great music, and when performed sympathetically on modern instruments it sounds as fresh and new as the day it was written. It can stand toe to toe with anything that came later.

C.P.E. Bach: Piano Concertos Wq 17, 43/4, 14 / Rische

A ClassicsToday 10/10! Rische plays all of this music with unaffected gusto, adapting the large sound of the modern piano to the scale of the music without any suggestion of inhibition, retaining a healthy range of tonal shading and touch. The Leipzig Chamber Orchestra matches him with playing of impressive precision.
