Bach: Sonatas for Violin & Harpsichord, BWV 1014-1019

$17.99 (2+BTN*)

One of the finest versions of these six incomparable works, with proper balance between violin and harpsichord restored for the first time on CD. Bach’s six sonatas for violin and harpsichord represent the culmination of the genre of the
baroque trio sonata. Fifty years after they were composed, Bach’s son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, praised these works as “unsurpassable.” These performances, using instruments Bach himself would have recognised, reaffirm C.P.E. Bach’s assessment for the 21st-century listener.

Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach Johann Sebastian Bach
