Description: Although part of Frederick the Great's orchestra, Benda did not write his concertos in the galant style favored by the monarch. These works are in the empfindsamkeit style of C.P.E. Bach, as are the two harpsichord concertos by his brother - passionate and rough around the edges in their outer movements with arioso and larghetto middle movements accompanied by muted strings. Jan de Winne (flute), Ryo Terakado (violin), Shalev Ad-El (harpsichord), Il Gardellino.
