Bach JC - Woodwind Concertos – Anthony Halstead, Hanover Band Vol. 2







J.C. Bach is justly recognized in his own right as one of the most talented composers of the 18th century. The Oboe Concerto in F major No. 2 is full ofimage new ideas, likely written for his friend and oboist Johann Christian Fischer, and  found with his other compositions in London where he died. The Larghetto is a beautiful, melodic piece with excellent phrasing and dynamics by Anthony Robson. The Flute (Premier recording) and Bassoon Concerto are well performed by Rachel Brown and Jeremy Ward, backed up by the excellent period orchestra of The Hanover Band. This is an outstanding recording of exhilarating woodwind concertos.
