After the 5CD-Release with sacred choral music by Georg Philipp Telemann (C7215), Capriccio continues now with most impressive Cantatas and Oratorios by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

It's already shown that the famoust of the Bach-Sons has nothing to hide compare to his Fathers Masterworks. Since three decades, Hermann Max has been a major contributor to the canon of historically informed performance practice and makes these Rarities alive again.
