C. P. E. Bach Sonata in G minor, Wq 65/17
J. S. Bach English Suite No.6 in D minor, BWV 811

C. P. E. Bach was one of the most important figures of the 18th century, a son of J. S. Bach with feet in both the Baroque and Classical camps and a master of a deeply modern and expressive new style that profoundly influenced Haydn and Beethoven. Appropriately, pre-eminent keyboard-player Carole Cerasi uses both harpsichord and fortepiano as she returns to the Festival to celebrate this great composer's 300th anniversary.

'A player of taste and superb technique.'
Gramophone
