A new dynamic Italian Baroque Orchestra makes its debut with not mainstream symphonies. Choosing four of Bach’s sons, all born between 1710 and 1735 and programming their exploration of the then new genre between c.1755 and c.1770, when the five Sinfonie recorded here were composed.
Three keywords are essential: Galant Italian style, German Empfindsamer style and the European Sturm und Drang movement. It’s all about cantabile and sensitivity in the first two cases and about unbridled emotions announcing the romantic era in the third one.
