ArtistsMichele Benuzzi (harpsichord)
The first recording of the 12 sonatas Op.1 and 2 by Christoph Nichelmann.
Nichelmann, a German composer and keyboard virtuoso, is said to have studied with Johann Sebastian Bach. This is clearly audible in his keyboard sonatas, which follow the contrapuntal Baroque style and instrumental flourish of his master. However, the publication year of 1745 already hints at further developments in terms of style and expression: certain harmonic experiments and emotional outbursts already foreshadow the Sturm und Drang style of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
Italian Michele Benuzzi is the perfect advocate of Nichelmann’s keyboard output: with a deep understanding of the style, he captures the right emotional temperature of these beautiful pieces. Michele Benuzzi has already recorded for Brilliant Classics - a CD with works by Hässler (BC94293) which received excellent reviews in the international press.
Booklet contains liner notes, artist biography and details on the recording venue.
