The life of Johann Sebastian Bach’s youngest son Johann Christian (1735 – 1782) is notably different from those of his brothers and the majority of 18th-century German masters. Like hundreds of their colleagues in various German regions, Wilhelm Friedemann ‘the Gallic Bach’, Johann Christoph Friedrich ‘the Buckeburg Bach’ and ‘the Berlin’ or ‘Hamburg Bach’ Carl Philipp Emanuel sought and found an application for their talents in Germany.
Only a few Germans made a European career for themselves and won wide acclaim. One of them was Johann Christian, called by his contemporaries ‘the Milan’ or ‘London Bach’. After his successes in Italy and later England he gained a reputation as one of the most authoritative musicians of the second half of the 18th century. Any mention in Europe of ‘the famous Bach’ referred to the junior Bach, not his father. It is noteworthy, that his elder brother Carl Philipp Emanuel achieved the same fame in Germany.

Press reviews

All Music

This is overall very well done; these are strong performances done with vigor and genuine enthusiasm for the youngest Bach. The orchestral performances — particularly the Symphony Op. 6/6 — are exceptional, and Caro Mitis’ Johann Christian Bach: Symphonies and Ensembles should make for a welcome addition to the library of any listener already well ensconced in the musical lodgings of the London Bach, not to mention the outstanding booklet note included and the excellent sound. This will serve well in helping establish a reputation for this exciting, young Russian period-instrument group.
