“Manfred Huss’s Vienna Haydn Sinfonietta is fantastic. The playing is ebullient, energetic, spirited, and filled with rhythmic verve and vitality.” Fanfare; “It is a lovely program: expressive, vigorous, and all played on period instruments.” American Record Guide
Once valued even higher than his father, J. S. Bach, and revered by Haydn, Mozart (‘He is the father of us all…’) and Beethoven, C. P. E. Bach’s music has since become the preserve of musicologists and specialists.
Manfred Huss has been a long-time champion of C.P.E. Bach, and the present disc combines recordings that he made with the Haydn Sinfonietta Wien in 2005 and 2006.
Awarded the prestigious Pasticcio-Preis at the time of their original release, these concertos and symphonies were composed by C. P. E. Bach over a 35-year period.
