Pianist Michael Rische is one of a group of artists who consistently enrich the music scene with their discoveries. Since 2011, he has been renewing interest in the nearly forgotten keyboard concertos of Carl Philipp Emanuel through a series of recordings. On his latest volume, Rische is joined by the Berlin Baroque Soloists in three concertos. He writes, “The musician of our time has in his mind, consciously or not, the musical thinking of Debussy and Ravel, of Schoenberg and Stravinsky – a large radius of musical experience that reaches into the present day and suddenly reverberates in a piano concerto by Bach. The constant refining of our ears, for which we thank the great composers, finally allows us to do justice to the piano concertos of Emanuel Bach; something that was denied them in a previous age.”
