Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Bach family was the largest and most incredibly talented musical families of all time. Even before Johann Sebastian began composing, his uncles Johann Ludwig and Georg Christoph Bach, and children, C.P.E., Wilhelm Friedemann after him, and still later Johann Christian Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst - to name but a few members of the famous Bach family, were all accomplished musicians and composers. For nearly two hundred years, the Bach family dedicated themselves to singing God's praises in music. Helmuth Rilling, who has made the works of the great Johann Sebsatian and his family his life work, performs these pieces with delicacy, energy and intelligence - providing an overview of the astounding diversity of musical language of the Bach family.
