Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

On April 9, 1786, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach conducted a charity concert in Hamburg featuring three of his finest and most representative works: the Symphony Wq 183/1, the Magnificat (written in 1749 in the hope of succeeding his father as Cantor in Leipzig) and his stupendous Heilig for double choir, of which he wrote, "It will be my swan song of this kind, and will serve to ensure that I shall not soon be forgotten after my death." Released to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the composer's birth, this recording recreating the program of this historic concert confirms the prophetic nature of the composer's words. Hans-Christoph Rademann leads the RIAS Kammerchor, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and a stellar cast of soloists (including soprano Elizabeth Watts) in definitive recordings of these fascinating and innovative works.

The Observer, 2nd February 2014
Hans-Christoph Rademann finds eloquence in the choral music and lets the Berlin Akademie rip with edgy tone in the symphony.

Sunday Times, 16th February 2014
Chorus and orchestra launch the work in exhilarating style, as Bach emulates his father's trumpety celebratory style, but with Vivaldian panache...This is a glorious disc.

The Independent, 22nd February 2014
The three works featured here represent what C P E Bach considered his finest achievements...The arias and chorales in his Magnificat echoes his father J S Bach's Mass in B minor, as if emphasising his lineage... rendered with grace by the Akademie Fnr Alte Musik Berlin.
