Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was Johann Sebastian’s natural successor. Although his career could not have been more different to that of his father, they had one thing in common: both wrote music of heart-breaking beauty and melodic genius.
The Feinstein Ensemble presents a programme of sublime chamber works, juxtaposing the music of these two extraordinary composers.
‘Feinstein has acquired a formidable command of CPE Bach’s very particular style. The ‘Sturm und Drang’ movements bristle and threaten, while those in ‘Empfindsamer Stil’ charm with deeply felt sentiment.’ Gramophone
