Amandine Beyer & Edoardo Torbianelli
For once the critics are of the same mind: Amandine Beyer is the violinist par excellence of the moment, and an absolute must-hear. With pianoforte specialist Eduardo Torbianelli she selected from the oeuvre of CPE Bach the sonatas that show the most fantasy and expressiveness. A touch of Viennese classicism or a dash of early romanticism are not excluded: this is a homage to Bach’s visionary genius!
Like father like son: after the violin sonatas and partitas of Johann Sebastian Bach in the previous season, the sonatas for violin and clavier by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach can now be added to Beyer’s AMUZ record of achievements as well. Her sparkling and committed playing is the ideal match for this rich, surprising, imaginative oeuvre. Pianist and violinist each venture their own expressive capabilities, ideas and personalities, seduced as they are by this splendid music with its complex forms and ingenious counterpoint.
