- Barbara Harbach (Harpsichord)
Notes & Reviews:
The short life of this composer remains mysterious, yet intriguing. Little is known about her early years. Apparently her parents were successful, her mother as an opera singer and her father as a stage designer, and eventually all three were hired at the court of Prince Nikolaus von Esterhazy. The last known historical date for Anna Bon is in 1767, when she married an Italian tenor. Following a pattern typical of women composers and performers of the time, she apparently abandoned her musical career after marriage. The inventive, charming Sonatas for harpsichord on this disc give a glimpse of a musical style in the transition period from the Baroque to the Classical.
