Miklós Spányi continues from the previous volume of this series by presenting keyboard sonatas composed in 1744, a year of great significance in C.P.E. Bach’s development as a composer.

Beside three sonatas from that year, the programme includes an earlier and a later work: the very substantial 1740 Sonata in G major, Wq65/12, and the Sonata in F major, Wq65/21 composed 1747. Many sonatas of this period are serious ‘grand’ sonatas intended for professional players.

Miklós Spányi performs these works on the clavichord – an instrument favoured by C.P.E. Bach himself, and for which Spányi has a particular affinity.

BBC Music Magazine

September 2012

****

“Sonatas from the 1740s occupy Vol. 25 of Spanyi's immaculately considered companion series to his CPE Bach concerto cycle. The full-toned clavichord beguiles.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2013

“Why don't today's pianists jump on this repertoire as a matter of course?...The judiciously reverberant sound and the large-sized clavichords that Spanyi favours illuminate the composer's carefully considered dynamic contrasts, bringing welcome vibrancy and presence to the performance.”
