The three cello concertos by C.P .E. Bach are among the highlights of the concertante cello literature between the genre contributions of Vivaldi and Haydn. In the meantime, it is also certain that the no less popular versions of the three concertos for flute and keyboard instrument were later transcribed and arranged by the composer himself, from the cello concertos which he wrote between 1750 and 1753. In their musically sophisticated and inspiring recording, Christophe Coin and the Orquesta barroca de Sevilla under Enrico Onofri underline the outstanding rank of the three concertos as masterpieces from the era of sensitivity.
