JOHANN CHRISTIAN BACH (1735-1782): 6 Keyboard Sonatas, Op. 17.
Catalogue Number: 03J032
Description: Although first published in 1774, most of these sonatas seem to date from the early 1760s except, perhaps for No. 2 - unusual for its minor key and forward-looking andante - and No. 6, which demands an instrument of five octaves and which is the most technically demanding. The others are early Classical pieces of the type which the child Mozart heard and emulated in London. Alberto Nosè (piano).
