C.P.E. Bach called his father’s six sonatas with harpsichord (BWV 1014–1019) among his finest compositions, possibly due to the juxtaposition of a through-composed keyboard part against the ‘solo’ instrument, which was novel at the time. Each of the pieces on this program exemplify this fresh approach, featuring both instruments as equal partners with exhilarating results.
