Performers and Cast

Riccardo Minasi

The composers featured in this programme left home to find their own voices. Bach’s most famous sons were key players in the transition from the baroque style of their father to the new classical style that found its brightest invention in Mozart and Haydn.

JC Bach ran fashionable subscription concerts in London from the mid-1760s, which often featured his charming sinfonia concertantes. CPE Bach, although he held conventional court positions in Berlin and Hamburg, was a restless innovator in the emerging symphony form and solo concertos.

When Mozart escaped to Vienna from Salzburg, he took his large-scale Symphony no. 34 with him, where it was one of his first big public hits, establishing him as a composer to be reckoned with.
