C.P.E. BACH: Concerto in D minor, Wq23, H427 (2 CD set) by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788). For piano. Instrumental Solo Part and 2 CDs. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3091).
Composed in 1748, this gorgeous and increasingly popular piece demonstrates the brilliance of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. It transcends its late baroque/early classical timeframe and is pervaded by a pensive quality and even a predisposition toward a romantic sensibility. Highly recommended and not of excessive difficulty (includes music with difficulty levels 3-7). This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you get up to speed.
Includes an authoritative, newly engraved solo part (with orchestral reduction) on high-quality ivory paper; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, and a second performance minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete version as well as a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The concerto is voluminously indexed for your practice and performance convenience.
