The Northern Echo

Cellist Nicolas Altstaedt is joined by Arcangelo, under the baton of Jonathan Cohen, in readings of C.P.E. Bach’s cello concertos. The unpredictable qualities of the sometimes wild works are given free rein in these superlative accounts. The A major is delivered with a lilting delicacy, while the A minor’s slow movement has ineffable grace.
