Bach, C P E: Hamburg Symphonies (6) for Strings, Wq. 182 (H567-662)


In honor of CPE Bach's 300th birthday, hänssler CLASSIC will be releasing an exciting series of recordings dedicated to the music of this well known but hitherto neglected Bach son during the first 3 months of 2014. At the beginning there are the so-called “Hamburg” symphonies Wq 182, interpreted with great sensitivity and bite, when necessary, by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra under the renowned conductor and former violist of the Berlin Philharmonic, Wolfram Christ. Maestro Christ sees these works as expressive pieces, open to multiple interpretations that invite the listener to experience them as almost Romantic in their gesture and content. Deciding on a fortepiano continuo instrument is not only a historically informed decision, but contributes to a perfectly balanced overall sound.

Julian Steckel (violoncello)

Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, Susanne von Gutzeit

C.P.E. Bach began writing his three cello concertos in 1750, not for his royal employer, but for middle-class musical society in Berlin and Potsdam. The works were later also published in versions for harpsichord and flute. Concertos for the cello were new at the time, for the instrument had thus far been seen as a continuo instrument. In the opinion of the flautist and music theorist Johann Joachim Quantz of Berlin, "Performing solo on this instrument is not at all an easy matter. In order to distinguish himself, a player must be born with long fingers and strong nerves to accomplish the stretches." Bach obviously had an excellent player at his disposal - in all probability Ignaz Mara (1721-1783), the Bohemian first cellist at the royal chapel. In Friedrich Nicolai's Beschreibung der Königlichen Residenzstädte Berlin und Potsdam (description of the royal seats of Berlin and Potsdam) of 1779, Mara is mentioned as an "outstandingly good solo performer on the cello" and claimed to have had an "extremely moving" tone. Nicolai ends the section with the comment: "... no more than an excellent orchestral musician in his old age". Mara was in his mid-fifties at the time.

Dorothea Seel (flute) & Christoph Hammer (fortepiano)

The flute became a highly fashionable instrument in the 18th century, and CPE Bach used it in his compositions throughout his life, from early works written in his teens, through a fruitful period at the court of Frederick the Great, to his time in Hamburg.

His works for this instrument frequently betray the influence of Friedrich II, yet the distinctive traits of a composer as great as CPE Bach often surface. Again and again you encounter surprising twists and new compositional approaches.

The sensitivity and expressiveness of CPE Bach’s highly personal musical language are beautifully realized on Dorothea Seel’s copy of a late-Baroque Transverse flute made by Jacob Denner, with vivid accompaniments provided by Christoph Hammer on a period fortepiano.

Michael Rische (piano)

Leipzig Chamber Orchestra

The previous two CDs from pianist Michael Rische of the Piano Concertos of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach have been universally acclaimed for their high degree of musicality and the pianist’s passionate commitment to this composer. And in fact, much of the work of this highly original genius remains to be discovered. The 300th Birthday of Bach's second son offers an ideal occasion to become better acquainted with this extraordinary and surprising composer. In addition to the solo concertos, this CD also presents the Concerto for 2 Pianos and Orchestra Wq 46. In each work, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach makes the claim - once again – of his unique place in the history of music, and as evident in these vital, life-affirming performances, is one of the truly great “rediscovered” composers of the past.

CPE Bach: Works for Violin and Pianoforte

CPE Bach: Works for Violin and Pianoforte

Recorded in the Kammermusik Studio des SWR, Stuttgart, Germany, 9-11 January 2006


Bach, C P E:

Sonate en ut mineur H514, Wq78

Sonate en si bémol H513, Wq77

Arioso con variazioni, Wq. 79 (H535)

Sonate en si mineur H512, Wq 76


Albrecht Breuninger (violin), Piet Kuijken (piano)

The sonatas of 1763 presented here show not only the composer's ability to express personal feelings, but are direct precursors of the great creations of Mozart and Beethoven in the field of instrumental sonatas with obligato piano accompaniment. These passionate works anticipate developments that would appear later in the Romantic era. That alone should be enough to want to listen to them. Period instrument experts Piet Kuijken and Albrecht Breuninger bring this music to life with spontanety and a dash of improvisation - just right for these Sturm und Drang works of original genius.
