Volume 19 features music from the 1760s. Spányi performs on a tangent piano, a variant of the fortepiano with a number of possibilities for adapting the timbre and dynamics. The results are striking especially in the sets of variations, but also in the more ‘orchestral’ pieces with their rich timbres and dynamic contrasts.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2010

“The tangent piano has appeared in this series before but Spányi here used the variations as an excuse to explore the colours of its tone-altering stops, which are many, varied and delightful. My favourites are the dulcimer-like sound heard in Variation 6 of Ich schlief, and the sostenuto chimes used for the C major Allegro, originally written for a musical clock.”

MusicWeb International

18th April 2013

“The generally more intimate character of these sonatas come off ideally at the clavichord. The instrument is very responsive to any action of the player and allows a very fine dynamic shading...Miklos Spányi is one of the world's main specialists in this repertoire and as in previous volumes he catches the spirit of Bach's keyboard music perfectly.”
