Johann Christian Bach, the youngest son of Johann Sebastian, made his career first in Italy and then, from 1762, in London, where he was a pioneer in the use of the fortepiano.

His elegant, forward-looking concertos, written in the galant style, make a contrast with the more straightforward yet entertaining concertos by his older brother Johann Christoph Friedrich, who spent the greater part of his life at the court of B├╝ckeburg in Lower Saxony.

“The performances give a good idea of the character and quality of these keyboard concertos. Susan Alexander-Max plays with panache and verve in the fast movements, and exposes the expression in the slow movements quite well. The strings give good support - and that is exactly what their role is.”
