In these five sonatas from the 1760s, the period prior to C.P.E. Bach’s departure from Frederick the Great’s court in Berlin, we find some of his most attractive writing, in the opinion of Darrell M. Berg, author of the liner notes to this disc and general editor of the complete edition of the composer’s works. Miklós Spányi has acquired a reputation as a leading interpreter and firm advocate of this music. He has here chosen to perform it on C.P.E. Bach’s own favourite keyboard instrument, the clavichord. Spányi’s ground-breaking work in this series, and in the parallel one of the same composer’s keyboard concertos, will be familiar to many lovers of early keyboard music. Volume 17 of this series was selected as Editor’s Choice in Gramophone, and described as ‘the answer to clavichord fans' dreams’.

“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.”
