Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach is the most famous of the sons of J. S. Bach. His magisterial oeuvre contains, notably, a large number of concertos for various instruments and keyboard pieces. But the composer also excelled at vocal music, thus continuing in the family tradition by composing, among other genres, sacred and secular cantatas and songs. CPE Bach's works respect the rules of Baroque style while also hinting at the dawn of the Classical style subsequently represented by Haydn and Mozart. Cafe Zimmermann has been including the music of CPE Bach in its programs for years, notably in a recording which marked a turning point in the discography. A Leipzig newspaper wrote of the ensemble's interpretation of the works by CPE Bach: "Anyone who has heard the sensational Cafe Zimmermann in this music, the brilliant, ardent spirit of their playing, their profusion of colorsâ€¦ will want to hear more of this composer." Here is a futher opportunity to do so, in partnership with the English tenor Rupert Charlsworth, who recorded his first album in 2015.
