Württemberg Sonatas [Wq. 49:1-6]

CPE Bach’s six ‘Württemberg’ sonatas, which were written in 1742–3 and published in 1744. Dramatic, beautifully written, endlessly imaginative, these sonatas range stylistically from initial stirrings of Sturm und Drang in keyboard music to sublime imitations of the human voice, with nods to the High Baroque and the idiom of CPE Bach’s famous father: Johann Sebastian.
