J.S. Bach's seven fabulously inventive concertos for solo harpsichord and orchestra mark a key stage in the history of the concertante form. The set was compiled during Bach's Leipzig years, when he directed the city's Collegium Musicum, and requires unfailing virtuosity and imagination of its performers. In the interpretations of Andreas Staier and the Freiburger Barockorchester, these works come alive again in joyful readings that are sure to delight.

Towards the end of his life, Johann Sebastian Bach made a second collection of concertos, these for keyboard. Around 1738 he put this together, possibly as a way of publicizing his work with the Leipzig Collegium , or possibly with an eye towards publishing them. The six works are all somewhat eclectic since they seem to have been transcriptions of works for other instruments, as the informative booklet notes by soloist Aapo Häkkinen state. There are other sources in the Bach archives, so how he put them together can more or less be traced, and in recording these, Häkkinen and his Helsinki Baroque Orchestra have decided that they would be split into two volumes.

In 2012, too, there are prominent treasures to be found: Aapo Häkkinen plays Bach’s Concertos for solo harpsichord and strings – the crown jewels of the harpsichord and piano literature – on a 16’ harpsichord, that is to say, an instrument with an additional, very low sounding register. Although Bach probably used a similar harpsichord himself, this is the first recording of this cycle of works on an instrument of this kind built in a historical manner!

"…The playing of the Retrospect Ensemble is spot-on from beginning to end. Tempos are brisk but not pressed to the point that compromises articulation or unanimity of bowing and fingering, and the readings are buoyant, energetic, and fresh-sounding. Complemented by Linn's wonderfully clear and transparent multichannel recording, Bach's music shines." ~Fanfare

The project was conceived right from the start to extend over a number of years and to include the six Brandenburgs. When you define principles of interpretation that are valid enough to stand the test of time and you have alongside you a team of musicians committed to the same quest for the truth of the music, things unfold very naturally. Several factors were decisive in our choice to record the orchestral music of Bach. The first was the harpsichord: there aren’t all that many concertos for the instrument, and it seemed an obvious idea to look at those. And Céline is such a wonderful harpsichordist! Another element was the fact that Café Zimmermann is made up of excellent musicians from many different horizons: the rich inventiveness of the inner voices in Bach and the variety of his scoring provided an opportunity to give expression to that diversity.
