Ths 13th volume in Miklós Spányi’s ongoing series of the solo keyboard music of C.P.E. Bach is more that usually varied. The programme consists of works from several genres – variations, sinfonias and sonatas, as well as one of the composer’s few fugues – all of which were composed between 1741-1755. The repertoire has been governed by the instrument which Miklós Spányi has chosen for this recording, a copy of a Silbermann fortepiano. In Spányi’s own words, the works which have been brought together here are among the most ‘fortepiano-friendly’ compositions in C.P.E. Bach’s œuvre. The Silbermann instrument – a great favourite with Bach’s employer Frederick the Great, who owned a number of them – gives an extra vitality and grandeur to the ‘orchestral’ writing of the sinfonias as well as underlines the pianistic character of the set of variations. A very special instalment in a very special series, therefore!
