This new release from CPO celebrates a composer who hardly figures at all in today’s broad cultural memory: Prince Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar (1696-1715). His original and brilliant concertos are now being presented in complete form for the first time on cpo, complemented and contextualized by the harpsichord transcriptions of Johann Sebastian Bach based on these works.
