Notes & Reviews:

This is the fourth volume in Centaur's edition of the complete Six Collections of Keyboard Works for Connoisseurs and Amateurs of C.P.E. Bach. Sri-Lankan born fortepianist, harpsichordist, composer as well as Founder and Director of Con Gioia, Preethi de Silva is a specialist in this literature. The journal Early Music (Oxford) recognized her for her "profound understanding of [C.P.E.] Bach's idiosyncratic language."

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The sound often shows remains perfectly serviceable; the performances are first-rate. Indeed, these readings are the best available of any complete (or nearcomplete) recording of this great collection of CPE's music, and this belongs in every listener's library. The instrument choices are superb and her timing and sense of style sufficient to project the alternately capricious and singing character of the music; the performances of the little C-major Fantasia, the Rondo in E-flat, and the D-minor Sonata (all from the sixth collection) illustrate her expressive range nicely.
