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 Bückeburg 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.”
