ArtistsCPE Bach Chamber Orchestra
CPE Bach was a figure of transition, building a bridge between the Baroque and the Classical style. His symphonies of course lack the formal structures of the classical symphony by Haydn or Mozart, but they are highly personal and original works, full of unexpected turns, surprises, jokes and 'affects'.
Dedicated and spirited performances by Hartmut Haenchen, who leads his CPE Bach Chamber Orchestra in a historically informed way, the orchestra playing on 'traditional' instruments.
“Vigorous performances lacking neither in expressive sensibility nor in virtuosity” - Gramophone
Recorded in 1985.
