Catalogue Number: 05N027
Label: Grand Piano
Description: Neefe's only claim to fame is as Beethoven's first main teacher in Bonn. These sonatas, published in 1773, range from the late Baroque (a rather Bachian first movement in No. 1) to the Empfindsamkeit style of C.P.E. Bach. The apt coupling is the result of an assignment to the 12- year-old Beethoven by his teacher Neefe. 2 CDs. Susan Kagan (piano).
