After the previous well-received release featuring sacred choral music by Georg Philipp Telemann, Capriccio continues here with most impressive Cantatas and Oratorios by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. It has already been proven that the most famous of the Bach sons has nothing to be ashamed of when compared to his father’s masterworks. CPE Bach forged his own compositional path as the Western world shifted to classicism. The German conductor, Hermann Max, studied music at the Berlin Musikhochschule and musicology at the University of Köln. Hermann Max is active as an editor of early music, and regularly conducts, among others, the international interpretations for choral conducting and choral singing in Romain-môtier (Switzerland). Without his efforts, we would have a false or incomplete picture of an important period in musical history- the middle German music surrounding J.S. Bach, his sons and countless relations, colleagues and students.
