Description: Bach's attractive, tuneful, harmonically adventurous, forward-looking chamber music is now overlooked as other composers of his period are being discovered for the first time, which is a shame. So here's a fine new recording on period instruments of a selection dating from the 1770s. All these works are under-recorded and Op. 22/2 is claimed as a first recording. Amarillis.
