ArtistsAndrea Chezzi (harpsichord)
The symphonies by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach span the bridge between the Baroque and the Classical period. They are relatively short 3 movement works, abounding in originality, caprice and virtuosity. In order to satisfy the need of the upcoming class of bourgeois amateur players, he transcribed several of these symphonies for harpsichord solo, altering or omitting little or nothing, and fully preserving the boldness and drama of the original. After all, Carl Philipp was a phenomenal harpsichord player himself.
Italian keyboard player Andrea Chezzi plays these works with full drive and conviction on a magnificent harpsichord of orchestral allure.
Recorded in January 2013 in Perugia, Italy.
