Description: Five of these seven items are world premiere recordings, several from his late, post-1774 period in Berlin where a playful and buoyant surface conceals a formal daring and depth of expression (not to mention a very conservative style which did not find much favor with up-to-date audiences) which characterize all the works of this driven, irascible perfectionist. Léon Berben (harpsichord).
