“CPE Bach and all that followed…”

CPE Bach Fantasy in F sharp minor H300 (Wq67)
Mozart Adagio in B minor K540

Haydn Sonata No.58 in C Hob.XVI/48

“He is the father – we are the children!”
(WA Mozart on CPE Bach)


Intense lyricism, dare-devil virtuosity, shocking harmonisation, wild chromaticism, passion, eloquence, emotion, drama and subtlety, are all hallmarks of CPE Bach’s kaleidoscopic, often outrageous and bizarre masterworks.This programme offers concert-goers the opportunity to closely examine CPE Bach’s indisputable influence on the music of his successors, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven; to discover how he helped shape and bring about the Classical era, as we know it today.

“Joshua’s playing demonstrated that in the hands of an excellent musician the fortepiano’s qualities can enhance the work of the greatest composers” Musical Opinion
