Notes & Reviews:

Preethi de Silva continues her survey of the complete keyboard music of C.P.E. Bach for Centaur, here featuring Six Collections of Keyboard Sonatas and Free Fantasias, along with some Rondos for Fortepiano, for Connoisseurs and Amateurs, Third Collection, Wq. 57, for solo keyboard. Sri-Lankan born fortepianist, harpsichordist, composer and Founder /Director of Con Gioia, Ms.de Silva is a specialist in this literature. The Journal of 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.
