Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • J. C. Bach's compositions epitomize the Gallant style, graceful, witty, virtuosic and designed to entertain.
  • This virtuoso opus, newly recorded, is played by internationally respected fortepianist specialist Bart van Oort.
  • Musicologist Sylvia Berry wrote the booklet's liner notes.

MusicWeb International, January 2015
Van Oort is a seasoned interpreter of classical and romantic repertoire on fortepianos, and he takes Johann Christian Bach's music fully seriously. He pays much attention to the different features of the respective sonatas, and his interpretation does justice to the stylistic differences within this set. This is a very fine recording.
