Notes & Reviews:

The pianist Anthony Spiri is considered among today's most respected vocal accompanists, chamber musicians and soloists. Born in the USA, he received his training in Cleveland and Boston before removing to Europe where he completed his studies at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Mr. Spiri is a professor of piano chamber music at Cologne's Musikhochschule. Special attention in the pianist's discography is given over to his modern piano recordings of Bach, father & sons, as is demonstrated here via this W.F. Bach release, his follow-up to his earlier OehmsClassics Faure release.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Mr Spiri's program originally appeared in 2007 and included three works later argued to be by Bach's contemporary Johann Wilhelm HSssler. Realizing his error, Spiri proposed reissuing the disc and substituting other Bach works for the HSssler ones. Mr Barker wrote a fine review of the original release (Nov/Dec 2007), expressing his preference for the harpsichord in this repertory. I think the piano reveals the music's expressive potential much better, so would heartily recommend the new release.
