The Father, the Son and the Godfather is a snapshot of a time when composers were offered a tremendous freedom in their choices of genres and styles and features three composers who knew each other well: J.S. Bach (the father), C.P.E. Bach (the son) and Georg Philipp Telemann (CPE’s godfather).

We thus get Johann Sebastian’s rigorous, intellectually demanding Sonata in B minor, ample examples of the elegant and tender Empfindsamer Stil of his son C.P.E., and in two Trio Sonatas a taste of Telemann’s ‘world music’

This is the first recording of Paradiso Musicale, an ensemble featuring the acclaimed recorder player Dan Laurin and made up of an unusual combination of instruments.

“Paradiso Musicale is an ensemble of compelling soloists, each with virtuosity and insight to burn, but it's nonetheless an ensemble in the ultimate sense, sparking fruitful conversations yet speaking as one responsive voice...this is a hugely impressive debut disc.”

“This is something of a breath of fresh air across the landscape of today's baroque recording. The two upper voices of Paradiso Musicale are Dan Laurin's recorder and Henrik Frendin's viola, which thoroughly unconventional pairing gives them a fresh take on textural matters...this is a very enjoyable disc.”
