Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Johann Christian's highly melodic style differentiates his works from those of his family. He composed in the Galante style incorporating balanced phrases, emphasis on melody and accompaniment, without too much contrapuntal complexity. The Galante movement opposed the intricate lines of Baroque music, and instead placed importance on fluid melodies in periodic phrases. Christian Bach, a favorite composer of the young Mozart, was particularly fond of combining the timbres of winds and strings. That special blend of colors is the focus of this attractive collection of chamber music, which also gives soloistic prominence to the harpsichord. The ensemble Amarillis offers stylish and virtuosic readings of these supremely charming works.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The musicians are clearly enthusiastic about performing this music. It is sparkling, elegant, graceful - and it needs careful listening. I find that with Haydn's symphonies, if one sits and really listens to them, the rewards are great; their subtle character does not come across well if the music is playing in the background as aural wallpaper. The same is true of these pieces. Putting these on as background music is a disservice to the music, as it can seem boring and even annoying after a while. But this is a topnotch recording, beautifully performed by excellent musicians.
