Editorial Reviews

This new release of keyboard concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach and his sons
Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christian Bach features the most beautiful
and popular keyboard concertos of their output. Originally written for harpsichord,
they are played on a modern piano on this recording.

Anastasia Injushina, prize winner of the ARD competition in Munich among
others, has been invited to perform internationally and made numerous recordings
for radio and television. Having a poetic, sensitive and even inner spiritual
approach she has given concerts both as a soloist and a chamber musician with the
world leading musicians as partners. Her strong relationship to chamber music has
been a thriving force for her and since 2009 she is artistic director of the
'Springlight Chamber Music Festival' in Helsinki.
The Hamburger Camerata is known for wide-ranging, unusual, sophisticated
programs and its commitment to the classical repertoire as well as to contemporary
music.

Ralf Gothóni has appeared at the world's most distinguished music festivals and
with prominent European and American orchestras both as pianist and as
conductor, more often also in a dual role, conducting the orchestra from the piano.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding performance May 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I've heard the first of the concertos on this disk (by CPE Bach) on the classical radio station KDFC of The Bay Area and was stunned by the uncompromising and noble performance by Anastasia. Now that I have the full disk, I can happily confirm that she shines in all three pieces. This is the best performance of "JS and family" I've enjoyed in a long while.

5.0 out of 5 stars At the service of the music June 16, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Enjoy the antics of histrionic soloists and like your recordings over-miked? Then you'll have to skip this CD because pianist Anastasia Injushina, the Hamburger Camerata, conductor Ralf Gothóni, and Ondine's audio engineers demonstrate what fine results can be achieved when virtuosity and technology are placed at the service of the music.

Since "learning" J.S. Bach's keyboard concertos from Trevor Pinnock's LP set with the English Consort in the early 1980s, I've preferred 18th century music played on 18th century instruments and never thought a piano sounded right. These committed performances, however, convince me otherwise. More important here than using period instruments is execution informed by period practice. To aid in conveying 18th century style, Ondine in the 21st century provides a natural sound stage, allowing the instruments of the moderately sized orchestra to emerge clearly, with the keyboard in ideal balance.

The Hamburger Camerata furnishes exactly the right support for Injushina's light yet warm touch. Calling her a gifted pianist is an understatement, and overlooking this CD because she's playing a modern Steinway would be shortsighted.

And the music itself is delightful.

The Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach concerto that opens the program, published by the composer in 1772, is both brilliant and enchanting. The two concertos by Johann Christian Bach (one of C.P.E.'s younger brothers and a close friend of Mozart's) are pleasing in themselves and create interest in hearing more works by this lesser-known son of the Leipzig master. Finally, J.S. Bach's popular Concerto in E major, BWV 1053, sounds fresh and new in Injushina's hands -- a fitting conclusion to a wonderful 70 minutes of music.

Siegfried Schibli's informative liner notes cap a release of extraordinary talent, refined taste, and enduring quality. Or maybe you'd just rather hear the latest flash-in-the-pan superstar.

Original and creative interpretation is the best way to describe Ms. Injushina's CD. The Bach keyboard concertos come alive undeR her fingertips. Bravo!
