Product Description

Amazon.com

In the 18th century, when you said "Bach" it wasn't Johann Sebastian you were talking about, but his son, Carl Philipp Emanuel. An official member of Frederick the Great's Prussian musical establishment, C. P. E. Bach was the greatest keyboard virtuoso of his age. He wrote the definitive treatise on keyboard technique and the art of ornamentation, and presided over the transition from the Baroque to the Classical styles. His own compositions are numerous and of extremely high quality, though not at all well known today. His concertos, symphonies, and sonatas are noteworthy for their unpredictable and highly emotional--indeed almost Romantic--intensity. This inexpensive disc makes an ideal introduction to a composer whose works are enjoying a major revival. Come and hear why! --David Hurwitz

Format: Audio CD
Even though I thouroughly enjoyed all of the Naxos CPE Bach discs, this one is my favorite. Even though originally composed for other instruments and transcribed by Bach, these concertos work perfectly with the cello and are well performed by Hugh and the orchestra.

The two concertos in A are out and out masterpieces with long, palpably emotional slow movements that as the Amazon review states have almost Romantic feel but the outer movemements are Classical in their mixture of their exuberance and restraint d concerto is almost as good.

This CD is one that I have listened to several times without becoming bored and always tearing up at this beautiful music.

The tempo of this performance is so quick it is stressful to listen to. I have another performance, done at a slower pace, that I love.
