About this Recording

BACH, C.P.E.: Viola da Gamba Sonatas

The second surviving son of Johann Sebastian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel wrote prolifically for the harpsichord and the clavichord, and was regarded as the leading keyboard-player of his day. His three sonatas for viola da gamba and keyboard, written during the earlier part of his career as Court Harpsichordist to Frederick the Great, are virtuoso works that also display a fine command of melody.
