Notes & Reviews:

C.P.E. Bach's creative life can be seen as falling into three distinct periods. The first years naturally cover his earliest works, composed when his family moved to Cothen and Leipzig and his eventual study at the Frankfurt University. The second period begins in 1738 when he was summoned as a harpsichordist to the court of Crown Prince Friedrich. It ends in 1768 with the death of his godfather Telemann. The final period marks Bach's succeeding Telemann as the Kantor of the Johanneum in Hamburg and becoming the music director of the city's five main churches, where he remained until his death. During all three periods, solo keyboard music was Bach's central mode of expression, despite his obligations to the church. This recording, with the exception of the A-Major Sonata, contains works from Bach's final Hamburg period. The major achievement of this time was the six-volume series of works designed fur Kenner und Liebhaber (or, "for professionals and amateurs"), a hitherto unparalleled musical venture, perhaps inspired by his father's Clavierubung of 1726-1731. Anthony Spiri was born in New Jersey and studied in Cleveland and Boston with further work in historical instrument performance in Europe. His teachers included Hans Leygraf, Kenneth Gilbert and Erik Werba. He has performed with such artists as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Edith Mathis, Peter Schreier and Gidon Kremer. He is currently Professor of Chamber Music at the Musikhochschule in Cologne.
