Description: For completists interested in the Empfindsam style closely associated with CPE Bach, we offer these two sonatas by composer-harpsichordists who succeeded each other as Bach's second fiddles (OK, second harpsichordists) at the court of Frederick the Great. The style is instantly recognizable whether in Nichelmann's early piece of 1745 (played on harpsichord) or in Fasch's sonata published in 1770 (played on fortepiano). Jermaine Sprosse (harpsichord, fortepiano).
