The violin-and-keyboard sonatas of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach are as wild as his better-known keyboard sonatas and symphonies -- perhaps even wilder, for the composer fools at times between the quite conventional relationship between the two instruments. The four works recorded here have the advantage of being genuine works for violin and piano, not the piano-with-accompanying-and-almost-optional violin configuration that prevailed during much of the era of High Classicism. Bach's conceptions depend on the equality of the instruments' roles, for these works are primary examples of the empfindsamer Stil or sensitive style that had roots in various strains of philosophical thought of the time. Plenty of drama is generated as the musical lines are broken up into irregular little fragments, with each instrument taking the music off into new directions. Examples of intriguing structures are the first movement of the opening Sonata in B flat major, H. 513, with its deceptively conventional opening material that falls apart emotionally as the movement proceeds, and the slow movement of the Sonata in C minor, H. 545 (track 5), in which the piano and the violin lead almost separate existences. Each work has its own profile, and the music in general is a long way distant from the smoothly modulated textures and harmonic simplicity that was taking root in Vienna. The French team of violinist Amandine Beyer and pianist (not a fortepianist as the English translation of the notes erroneously states) Edna Stern deserves credit for giving these fascinating works an ambitious, intense recording. Beyer has the edgy, hyper quality that Baroque musicians who venture forward into the Classical era sometimes evince, but with C.P.E. Bach, hyper works just fine. Sample her flashing Baroque violin, which doesn't quite seem to match the piano used -- yet the performers chose a piano in preference to a clavichord, which was said to be C.P.E. Bach's instrument of choice for domestic-sized music. They are right that it is hard to imagine these pieces with clavichord. With a little adjustment of the ears to the duo's unusual sound, the listener can enjoy exciting performances of some very unusual sonatas.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
