This disc features works from a hugely productive period of C.P.E Bach’s career between 1740 and 1744.
In these years two ambitious sets of six sonatas – the ‘Prussian’ (1740-41) and the ‘Württemberg’(1742-44) – were published along with a number of other sonatas of a similar scale. On this disc, four such sonatas have been included.
Miklós Spányi plays these works on a newly built clavichord by the eminent builder Joris Potvlieghe.

“It takes a while for the ear to accept on the clavichord music normally played on the harpsichord, but Miklos Spanyi's artistry justifies the effort.”
“There's no sense of flagging energy or commitment as Miklos Spanyi reaches the 23rd and 24th columes of his survey of the music of CPE Bach...Spanyi displays throughout a profound understanding of this music, tempering his approach to each piece accordingly.”
