Description

Between the years 1717 and 1723 Johann Sebastian Bach works as ‘Hofkapellmeister’ in Xothen in the service of the German prince Leopold von Anhalt-Kthen. During his tenure there, Bach was concerned chiefly with secular instrumental music. Among the works composed in this period are the six Brandenburg Concertos, the first hook of Das Wohltemperierte Clavier and the first four French Suites. Leopold was an enthusiastic music lover. He played himself and maintained what was for the time an extraordinarily large court orchestra. It was made up of the very best musicians of the day. The gambist and cellist Ferdinand Christian Abel must have been an exceptional player, as Bach composed six suites for cello for him in 1720, the first important compositions for solo violoncello in the repertoire.

‘Best release of the year‘

Salzburger Nachrichten

(…) Tatsache ist, da Pieter Wispelwey zu allererst ganz vorzglich und spannend, souvern und aufrgened Cello spielen kann. Er tut es mit dem jeweils adquaten historischen Empfinden (…) (…) Ich empfehle jede der zehn mir vorliegenden Einspielungen gerade deshalb, weil jede einzelne ihre ganz spezifische Aura besitz, weil also Wispelwey nie gleich Wispelwey ist.
