C P E Bach Cello Concerto

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s solo cellist Johannes Rostamo has immersed himself more and more in Baroque music in recent years. In this concert video we will see him as the soloist in Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s temperamental Cello Concerto in A-minor. Italian Luca Guglielmi leads Orpheus Baroque Stockholm from the harpsichord.

Many members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra are fascinated by early music, which was the basis for forming Orpheus Baroque in 2015. The musicians play period instruments and each concert is led by guests who are top musicians in early music; here we will meet Italian harpsichordist and conductor Luca Guglielmi.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was the most prominent of Johann Sebastian’s sons who composed music. At the same time, he broke away stylistically from his father’s Baroque music, which had the weight of counterpoint, becoming instead a representative of emotional rococo music. 

This explosive cello concerto is a development of a piano piece which was transformed into a concerto for flute, and only then into a cello concerto. The middle movement, an expressive andante, is surrounded by two stormy movements in which the musicians occasionally pause as if to gather renewed strength, only to head back out onto the open seas once again.
