Piano Concerto in G minor (1777)
Eckart Sellheim, piano Capella Coloniensis / Ulf Björlin
I think I heard each of them at least once, and still listen to them occasionally while I do chores. If I were to pick one to recommend to anyone, it would be the D minor, Wq 22. While Wq. 6, 7, 15, 17, 23, 26 (and the ones transcribed as cello cocnertos), 34 (with its emphasis on the galant style), etc, are melodically memorable. The slow movements of Wq. 20, 27 moody harmonically. But these days I find Bach a bit too rhythmically static, especially in the 8-9 minute long concerto slow movements (compared to his elderly contemporary Richter (1709-1789)).Of course, CPE Bach is a very familiar name but I wonder how many of us are familiar with his keyboard concertos (BIS issued some 20 CDs of them) and nearly all are really worth getting to know. There is so much magic in them and we can also hear the transition from the Baroque to the Classical - some works have both feet in one of these "camps" but in others he seems to have one foot in each.
