Notes & Reviews:

On this recording the sonatas in D, G, C and F are performed by Johann Schantz on a fortepiano that is now in the Holburne Museum in Bath. It was built around 1795, and is one of four surviving examples - there are two in Vienna and another in a private collection. The E-flat and A-flat major sonatas are performed on a delightful unnamed fortepiano in the remarkable private collection of Michael Turner. Michael Cole restored the instrument, which was a wreck when it was discovered. The instrument is thought to be Northern Italian, around 1790 or even earlier.
