Product Description

Product Description

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.

Review

It takes a while for the ear to accept on the clavichord music normally played on the harpsichord, but Miklós Spányi's artistry justifies the effort. 4* --Michael Church - BBC Music Magazine

'Spanyi displays throughout a profound understanding of this music, tempering his approach to each piece accordingly... If you're following this series, you'll want this volume' --Harriet Smith, Gramophone - Sep. 2012 Issue

Format:Audio CD
Now whilst the sound of the clavichord, which is like a cross between a harpsichord and fortepiano, may not be everyone's cup of tea, the music played here is well suited to the instrument, and I for one don't miss the modern grand piano in these works.
The four sonatas presented here all date from between 1740 and 1744 and come from his time as court orchestra of Frederick the Great in Berlin. At this period C P E Bach was regarded by this time as one of the foremost clavier-players in Europe, and during his time at court (1738-1768) he composed numerous keyboard works, including around thirty sonatas.
Of the four sonatas, all of which are in three movements, I would say that it the b minor sonata Wq 65/13, the longest on the disc, is my favorite, its slower Poco allegro opening movement giving the work a greater sense of grandeur. It is also the most forward looking of the four, giving us a glimpse of what was to come from this great composer.
The playing of Miklós Spányi, as throughout this wonderful series is excellent, I don't think you could wish for a better exponent of the composer's music, whether in the concertos or here in the solo keyboard works, Spányi seems to have the ability to get to the very heart of this beautiful music.
As with all the discs of the series, the notes are well written and informative, and the instrument is captured in a sympathetic acoustic which brings out the best qualities of the clavichord.
A most enjoyable disc, and one I have no hesitation in recommending, if you were to get just two or three discs in this series, then this disc should certainly be one of them!
