Annabelle requested something of Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach on melomaniacos.com.
Wonderful music of J.C.P Bach who is probably the least known of Bach's sons, perhaps only because he led the least spectacular life. There is also a very fine harpsichord solo sonata by him on the disc.
All compositions except the first are first recordings.
From the booklet: Born the same year as Haydn, this third of J.S. Bach's four brilliant musical sons abandoned his university studies in law at the University of Leipzig for a career in music when his father's final illness obliged him to earn his own living. He became a musician at the court of Count Wilhelm of Schaumburg-Lippe in Bueckeburg, a small town in north-west Germany about thirty miles from Hanover. He remained there for the rest of his life, rising eventually to the post of music director and achieving distinction as a great keyboard virtuoso as well as composer and conductor.
In those days, two stylistic dialects, both variants of the galant style, dominated European music - the elegant, extroverted southern, Italianate style, which we associate the "classical" style of Mozart and the music of J.C. Bach; and the less popular, darker, more Romantic, north German style of W.F. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, and even J.S. Bach himself, influenced strongly by the stark but expressive simplicity of both the Lutheran chorale and the song. Though situated in the north, Bueckeburg was dominated by Italian musicians. Perhaps this is why J.C.F. Bach's music fuses elements of the two styles more than does the music of his brothers. His travels and musical tastes likewise reflect his role as mediator between north and south. He visited J.C. Bach in England and C.P.E Bach in Hamburg, maintaining close ties with both. He also performed the music of Mozart and Haydn.
