Notes & Reviews:

From the cpo edition devoted to the complete symphonic and concertante oeuvre of Johann Christian Bach, the youngest of Bach's sons, we have now brought together in a boxed set his complete sinfonie concertanti previously released on six single CDs. J. C. Bach was a master in the genre of the sinfonia concertante. He bequeathed to posterity a total of seventeen such compositions for various instruments, and they number among his most highly imaginative works. This appealing genre of orchestral music featuring two or more solo instruments experienced its greatest flourishing for about sixty years in the eighteenth century, during the formative years of concert culture in the major European cities. The famous British musicologist Stanley Sadie, the editor of the New Grove Dictionary, holds the view that no other composer maintained such a consistently high level in the sinfonia concertante as did J. C. Bach in his contributions to this genre.
