Description

The Bach family has for a long time been the focus of genealogical research. No other musical family of German origin has spanned so many generations and produced such highly talented performers as well as composers of the highest order. From very early on, the family seems to have adopted the position of propagators of musical tradition. LS. Bach’s reference to his children as ‘born musici’ illustrates the strength of this tradition. The reasons for such an unusual concentration of musical talent are perhaps rooted in sound musical education, passed down through the various family members, especially the males. These members took the responsibility of training others in the immediate circle, as well as distant relatives, and this tradition remained strong in later generations. The Bach solidarity was probably achieved by several factors: self-sufficiency, extreme professionalism, guild-like regulation, intermarriage and strict religious observance, creating very close unity in the family, and thereby cementing social status and a self-propagating musical lineage. The members of the Bach family selected for this recording are represented in the simplified family tree. (page 2) Undoubtedly, the most famous among them was Johann Sebastian; however, this disc concerns itself with the five composers in italics in order to illustrate the incredible worth of his lesser-known relatives. Three out of seven generations are represented with some wonderfully rare and unusual compositions which are seldom performed and even more rarely recorded.

Press reviews

Goldberg

(…) Florilegium has established itself as one of the preeminent groups to be heard in 18th-century repertoire. (…)

Dclic

(…) Tout est savourer dans ce disque parfait, la magnifique adagio et fugue de Wilhelm Friedeman, les ‘chansons’ delicieuses de Johann Ernst, le quatuor de Johann Christian. Et bien d’autres merveilles. Et Catherine Bott est incroyable.

Select Music

(…) Florilegium’s fiery performance triumphantly reveals the music’s ingenious design and expressive flamboyance, highlighting both the work’s touching homage to brotherly love and its jubilant celebration of the Bach family’s astonishing musical. (…)

Musik & Theater

(…) Was diese bunte Mischung macht ist die untadelige Leistung des jungen Ensembles. Przision und Musizierfreudigkeit sind die eine Seite, profunte Kenntnisse der historischen Auffhrungspraxis die andere. (…)

CD-Aktuell

(…) Florilegium musiziert mit viel Lebendigkeit. Catherine Bott singt die Fabeln des Bach-Vetters Johann Ernst hinreiend.

Fono Forum

(…) Die Interpretation alles Stcke hat hohen Rang. (…)

The Recorder Magazine

(…) The result is astonishing (…) (…) it features beautiful music that you’re unlikely to have heard before, played superbly by this young and vibrant ensemble. (…)

Répertoire

(…) Lensemble Florilegium nest plus prsenter: en trois disques, dont deux en compagnie du violoncelliste Pieter Wispelwey, il sest fait une place de premier ordre dans les orchestres dinstruments anciens, grce un son gnreux et ensoleill, et une vivacit prcise et quilibre. (…) (…) Un disque au programme rare, subtil, enthousiaste.

Gramophone

(…) a Bach family anthology featuring three members of the clan whose music seldom finds its way into record catalogues. (…) (…) Florilegium, corporately and individually, play the music with heartfelt expression and a sensibility that mirrors the stylistic idiom. (…) (…) In summary, this is varied and enjoyable entertainment, well off the beaten track (…)

Gramophone

(…) played with elegance and charm by these artist (…) (…) varied and enjoyable entertainment (…)

Luister

(…) Florilegium geeft op deze cd een prachtige bloemlezing van vrijwel onbekende Bach-telgen. (…) (…) Altijd zijn de instrumenten goed in balans en blijven de frasen goed gearticuleerd, zonder mechanisch te worden. (…)

Classic FM Magazine

(…) This is an attractive family album with surprises in store for all but the most assiduous followers of this extraordinary musical dynasti. (…)

Hervormd Nederland

(…) Voor de keus van deze nooit, of bijna nooit gespeelde maar soms buitengewoon interessante Bachstukken, niet dan lof. (…)

Klassiek

(…) Dertig hoogtepunten in ruim vijf minuten (…) (…) De manier waarop de leden van Florilegium de werken op deze cd uitvoeren, getuigt opnieuw van een grote muzikaliteit, die door de prachtige opname een gouden randje krijgt.
