Pablo Valetti, violon et alto barouqe / baroque violin and viola
Les Boréades de Montréal

ACD2 2322

For the majority of music lovers up until the 1820s, the name Bach didn't conjure up Johann Sebastian, as is the case today, but rather one of his sons, Carl Philipp Emanuel, who worked successively in Berlin and in Hamburg.   He was indeed one of the most influential composers of his time and his particular qualities made him one of the precursors of musical Romanticism.   For this recording, the Boréades ensemble welcomes the eminent violinist of Argentinian birth Pablo Valetti, now very active in France, to enchant us with wonderful chamber music works - trio sonatas and quartets for various instruments-from the inimitable and intense genius of this great Bach.
