Notes & Reviews:

Allmusic.com
This album... was reissued on Phoenix Edition in 2011, by which time there were still very few choices for most of the music. ... they represent C.P.E. Bach's musical thinking in miniature structures in some cases just a few seconds long. They're consistently intriguing. Various keyboardists are represented in the series; this one features Britain's Linda Nicholson playing a clavichord. That's an attraction in itself. Recommended, especially for those who have never heard music of this period played on a clavichord; even some of Mozart's early keyboard pieces benefit from being performed this way.

American Record Guide
The very positive judgements I made in the earlier reviews still stand. The performances here are very strong and hold up quite well even to later competition (as in the symphonies and concertos). The sonics remain thoroughly satisfying. To be sure, booklet notes are sparse, and vocal texts are given only in the original German.
