Berlin was a crossroad for young composers in the 1700s. These emerging virtuosos came to Germany’s capital seeking inspiration, the excitement of the royal court, and, most importantly, the mentorship of Johann Sebastian Bach. On her five-string baroque cello and joined by lauded Italian keyboardist Lorenzo Ghielmi, Elinor Frey Cello explores the “Sensibility (Empfindsamkeit)” – fleeting and instantaneous expression of emotion – that lies in the work of J.C.F. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, C.F. Abel, Johann Kirnberger, and C.H. Graun.

Les sonates de Berlin
Berlin constituait une croisée des chemins pour les jeunes compositeurs des années 1700. Ces virtuoses en devenir venaient chercher, dans la capitale de l’Allemagne, l’inspiration, l’exaltation de la cour royale et, surtout, le mentorat de Jean-Sébastien Bach. Sur son violoncelle baroque à cinq cordes, aux côtés du fameux claviériste Lorenzo Ghielmi, Elinor Frey explore la « sensibilité (Empfindsamkeit) » – expression fugace et instantanée de l’émotion – que l’on retrouve dans les œuvres de J.C.F. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, C.F. Abel, Johann Kirnberger, et C.H. Graun.
