CARL PHILIPP EMANUEL BACH: Six Sinfonias for String Orch., W. 182 – The Vivaldi Project/ John Hsu – Centaur
Some of CPE’s most audacious music—and this from a composer known for his musical eccentricities.
C.P.E. BACH: Cello Concertos – Truls Mork, cello/ Les Violons du Roy/Bernard Labadie – Virgin Classics
Cello music of virtuoso caliber by the self-described “emotional” C.P.E. Bach and played with breezy perfection by Mork and the King’s Violins.
