About

This recording is an invitation to immerse ourselves in the musical inner circle of the Bach family.


We know little about Bach family life, with the exception of the famous Clavierbüchlein (Little keyboard book) that the forty-year-old composer gave as a present in 1725 to his second wife Anna Magdalena. This manuscript is a unique document of the music the family played together containing short keyboard pieces, songs, extended arias taken from the church cantatas and chamber music. A talented family: Bach and his two eldest sons were also excellent violinists, while his son-in-law, J.C. Altnickol, played the cello and double bass; Anna Magdalena Bach and her oldest stepdaughter both sang and the young children of the second marriage played easy pieces on their father’s various keyboard instruments.


The musicians and singers on this recording, all eminent exponents of Bach and of Baroque music in general, have come together here to bring these exceptional moments back to life.
