Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Bach's second son didn't write a great many symphonies, but all of them are good, and well worth hearing. As a composer, CPE has fallen between the cracks of musical history. Neither baroque nor fully classical, he's seen as a "transitional" figure, which is, musically speaking, like telling someone that they are "a little pregnant." The implication is that his style is somehow unformed or impure, when in truth it's both highly developed and utterly personal. As you can clearly hear in these excellent performances, CPE had his own things to say and a unique way to say them, and the fact that he wasn't Haydn or Mozart doesn't make his music one bit less interesting or enjoyable. Give him a shot. --David Hurwitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody handles it better... November 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
All of this is recorded elsewhere, and very well too, in complete editions. However The Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin performances are much more interesting, and recorded better. The performance of the concerto Wq. 34 on the organ is a treat and a rare gem. It is framed by four excellent symphonies, two chosen from the Grand Set for 12 obbligato instruments, and two chosen from the earlier set of string symphonies. The orchestra sounds particularly lush in the wind symphonies, and precisely dry in the pieces without. Overall an exquisite and dynamic sound, as usual from this orchestra. There is also a more recent release featuring similar repertoire that is definitely not to be missed.
