Notes & Reviews:

Harpsichordist and fortepianist Preethi de Silva has performed extensively as soloist and chamber musician in the US, the UK, Europe, and Australia. Born in Sri Lanka, she studied at London's Royal Academy of Music and Berlin's Hochschule für Musik, and at Yale University, where she earned the Doctor of Musical Arts degree. Considered an expert in the music of C.P.E. Bach, the Oxford journal Early Music recognized her for her "profound understanding of [C.P.E.] Bach's idiosyncratic language." Originally released in1984 on the Titanic label, First Hand offers this highly acclaimed recording its début on CD in celebration of C.P.E. Bach's 300th Birthday year.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Reissue of a Titanic recording from 1984. As I've observed before, Silva is a very imaginative player, is steeped in the Empfindsamer style, has excellent technique, and clearly loves the music.
