The unpredictable and ‘fantastical’ qualities which are so fundamental to the music of C P E Bach are here given free rein by Nicolas Altstaedt, aided and abetted by Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo in performances of astonishing brio.

Gramophone Magazine

September 2016

“Nicolas Altstaedt and the sinewy warmth of his 1760 Gigli are a great fit for this often rather wild music…Arcangelo under Cohen breathe the music, capturing the frequent storminess but also bringing substantial dignity, their zing coming from their actual tone and lucid textural balance…a great listen”

Financial Times

September 2016

“Whether intended for cello or harpsichord, these oeuvres are feverishly inventive”

BBC Music Magazine

November 2016

“This recording captures all the fiery wit of orchestral-soloist banter.”

MusicWeb International

“If not the best introduction to CPE Bach, then surely an important part of a good collection of his work.”
