C.P.E. Bach was the second son of the great J.S. Bach, and in his day he was a far more famous composer than his father. His musical style is very exciting--full of sudden contrasts and emotional outbursts. One of his first patrons was Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, who was a flute player of no small accomplishment. These concertos reflect Bach's thorough familiarity with the king's instrument, and what makes this album so outstanding is the fact that the concertos have a much-higher-than-average musical quality. Naturally, Galway plays them to the hilt. --David Hurwitz

I have perhaps six performances of these concerts (Nicolet, Rampal, Adorjan, Gallois etc.) for I'm very fond of C. P. E. Bach music. I have to say that, notwithstanding the famous Galway's sound, this is not the performance I prefer and the Orchestra is not so good according my taste.

Just very recently at a master class by this flute virtuoso, he was asked a question by a flutist what he felt was his finest recording. This was it, he said.

Having took the trouble to find and buy it used, I was not disappointed. His playing his crisp and superb, wonderfully supported by the Wurttemberg Chamber Orchestra of Heilbronn.

While all three are superb, I especially find the Largo movement of Concerto in G and the Un Poco Andante of Concerto in D Minor to be exceptional.

This one will find considerble playtime. Those who love superior flute playing will find this as Galway does, one of his best.

9/2/14. James Galway makes it so I actually enjoy listening to C.P.E. Bach music. He adds a musical flavor that is easy to hear without the annoying sound of the harpsichord (sorry, I do not enjoy the harpsichord). Great job. I heard this on FM Radio - WETA and wanted to add it to my music collection. Buying used CDs that are "like New" is the way to go.

This is a wonderful tour de force performance by James Galway and the Wurttemburg Chamber Orchestra. C.P.E. Bach's concertos are delightful, the musicians play very well, and the recording quality is excellent. A very enjoyable disk.
