CPE Bach and all that followed…
Schantz fortepiano

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

CPE Bach Fantasy in E flat major (H.277), Wq.58/6
Mozart Adagio in B minor K540

CPE Bach Rondo No.2 in C minor H283 (Wq 59/4)
Haydn Sonata No.58 in C Hob.XVI/48


CPE Bach Sonata No.VI in f minor Wq.63/6
Mozart Fantasy in C minor K.475
Beethoven Sonata ‘Pathetique’ in C minor Op.13

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

“Her recital was distinguished not just by insightfull, intelligent musicianship, but also by the refinement and shading of the tone colours she extracted from her instrument”.
