Anyone who is interested in the biography of J C Bach, the youngest son of J S Bach, immediately encounters the name C F Abel. In 1763 the two bachelors moved into a shared room in the fashionable neighbourhood of Soho, London. After two years, Bach and Abel presented their popular subscription concerts - included were Bach’s Sonatas for Viola da Gamba.

For years the question was always "Where are these compositions now?", and then in 1992 a previously unknown collection of manuscripts came to light, including these sonatas, which was sold to a private collector who gave Thomas Fritzsch permission to perform them.

The story comes full circle with them being released on this Coviello CD.
