BACH, J.C.: Keyboard Sonatas, Op. 17 (Heard)

Johann Christian Bach was a pivotal figure in the transition between the Baroque and the Classical eras, and a major influence on Mozart. As an avid proponent of the newly emerging fortepiano, he wrote works that took full advantage of the instrument’s expressive powers. In the first Naxos recording of these works on fortepiano, Rachel Heard brings to life the simple, elegant beauty of his Six Sonatas, Op. 17.
