The keyboard works on this recording illustrate two different aspects of the principle of variation as practiced in the mid-eighteenth century.

It is as a composer for stringed keyboard instruments that CPE Bach achieved fame. His works for these instruments include over 150 sonatas, several dozen concertos, numerous fantasias and rondos.

Considered to have been J S Bach’s last pupil, Müthel was little known in his own time. Yet he received the highest accolades from the best writers of music in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

Preetha de Silva’s recordings of keyboard works by J S Bach, CPE Bach and J G Müthel have garnered extraordinary international critical acclaim.
