Cello Concerto in C Minor by Johann Christian Bach

Welcome our web site about concerts in this area!

Johann Christian Bach (1735-1782) was the youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach and studied with J C Bach’s half-brother Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. J C Bach had more fame in his lifetime than his father. His successful opera caught Queen Sophie’s attention. The queen of England was German and was homesick and happy to hire a young German as her music teacher. He also wrote many orchestral and chamber works. Although the concerto in C minor is an example of classical-era concerto, there is a theory that J C Bach did not compose it. The concerto has disappeared since his brother CPE Bach’s death in 1788 and did not appear until 1947 via violinist Henri Casadesus and Camille Saint-Saëns.
