..."But as Hartmut Haenchen demonstrates in this 1988 recording with the Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestral symphonies (4) are truly the most appealing and enjoyable of C.P.E. Bach's symphonies. Haenchen's stylish phrasing, clear textures, bright colors, and light rhythms make a great case for the works as among the great early symphonies, works on the same level as the early Haydn or Mozart symphonies. The Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Chamber Orchestra responds with brilliant playing ... and Capriccio captures the performance in clean, crisp digital sound. As good a recording of the C.P.E. Bach Orchestral symphonies (4) as there has ever been."
