Penguin Guide, January 2009

François Chaplin plays these works freshly and confidently on the modern piano rather than on the clavichord (or harpsichord) which the composer would have expected, and he makes no attempt to imitate those instruments. The result demonstrates how forward-looking these sonatas are, especially the appealingly expressive slow movements of the later works. The closing Rondo of 1786 is particularly successful in using the piano’s fuller sonority.
