Concerti Brillanti: C.P.E. Bach, Graf, Haydn, Hasse

A well-established concerto and three discoveries, one a minor masterpiece, in excellent performances.

This is an unbeatable combination: a first-class, photogenic young cellist who has already made a reputation for himself teams up with one of the foremost early-music exponents. The programme combines the comparatively well-known C.P.E. Bach Cello Concerto with world-première recordings of three very fine concertos by C.P.E.’s predecessors and successors. Add good orchestral support and a very good recording and you have the recipe for what should make this co-production with Bavarian Radio a best-seller.

“Vogler's playing is technically assured and sturdily lyrical throughout all four works.” --Gramophone Magazine, June 2008
