JOHANN CHRISTIAN BACH (1735-1782): 6 Quartets for Oboe, Violin, Viola da Gamba and Bass, Op. 8.
Catalogue Number: 10T031
Label: Coviello Classics
Reference: COV 91712
Description: A recently discovered title-page to these Op. 8 quartets shows us that Bach also wrote a version for gamba instead of cello, likely a gift to his friend, business partner and gambist Carl Friedrich Abel. So this is not only a first recording, it’s also the only one of this opus number currently available. Go Arai (oboe), Daniel Deuter (violin), Thomas Fritzsch (gamba), Inka Döring (cello).
