Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach, the third of the sons of Johann Sebastian Bach to achieve musical distinction, composed some twenty symphonies as well as concertos, chamber and instrumental music, and a number of vocal works. The three elegant and witty symphonies on this disc are delightful examples of the synthesis between mid-to-late 18th-century Italian and German musical styles which marks the transition from Baroque to Classical. The acclaimed Leipzig Chamber Orchestra has recorded Haydn’s The Seasons (8.557600–01), Mozart’s Davide penitente (8.570231) and Requiem () as well as a series of Schubert’s Masses (8.572114, 8.570381, 8.572279 & 8.570764).



Review By Scherzo,April 2011


Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,February 2011

It’s easy to confuse the various composers of the Bach dynasty, so let’s be clear that this is not the “London Bach”—Johann Christian (1735–1782), who so kindly took the boy Mozart under his wing. This Bach’s music sounds a lot like that of his contemporaries of the Mannheim School fame: Cannabich, Krommer, the Stamitz clan, Richter et al. J.C.F. Bach’s lifespan overlapped Mozart’s short one, but while young Mozart went his own bitter-sweet way, Bach produced well crafted, solid fare in a more conventional style. The three sinfonias are a good sampling of the twenty such works Bach composed, and are played to the hilt by the Leipzigers led by Schuldt-Jensen, in wonderfully brilliant audio.
