Notes & Reviews:

When people spoke of the "great Bach" during the 18th century, they were not referring to Johann Sebastian but to his son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, one of the chief representatives of the Empfindsamer Stil (Sensitive Style). Although he worked as a harpsichordist at the court of Frederick the Great for over thirty years, Bach's forward-looking compositions were not appreciated by his conservative employer. Thus he composed primarily for the more open-minded Berlin salons of the nobility and the bourgeoisie. On this recording released to celebrate the composer's 300th birthday, Il Gardellino presents a selection of Bach's chamber concertos.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
The three soloists are excellent, and the period-instrument string ensemble, one player per part, is alert and stylish. The recording, made in a church, is quite spacious and, once one adjusts, gives the ensemble an added fullness. Excellent, up-to-date notes, too.

Early Music Review, April 2014
Another very welcome addition to the CPE Bach discography ... None of the soloists needs any recommendation from me ... [they are] all renowned practicioners of musical arts and CPE Bach provides them plenty of scope for virtuosic display.

International Record Review, December 2014
[De Winne] does a wonderful job being easy-going and charming and injecting some real shape and purpose...What I like about Il Gardellino's choice of works is that we get a good sense of Emanuel's restless musical personality...In all three concertos there's an ideal balance between the soloists and small orchestra; the performances have the suppleness of chamber music...This is my favourite disc of the tercentenary releases.
