This release presents the 4 symphonies that Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach wrote during his stay in Hamburg. In these large‐scale works the string section is extended with 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 horns and bassoon, instruments which are treated as quasi soloists, so that one can almost speak of a Sinfonia Concertante.

The musical language is clearly 'Sturm und Drang', full of vehement dynamics and changes of sentiment, the fingerprint of this most famous son of Johann Sebastian.

These are excellent performances on modern instruments but in 18th century spirit by the Kammerorchester Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, conducted by the great Hartmut Haenchen.
