    First of all, these Sonatas are fun to play as well as listen to. They actually sort out well on both harpsichord and piano. You must keep in mind the instruments of the day. The harpsichord was fully developed. The piano forte was developing. JC Bach inherited three pedal harpsichords...

    from his famous father, JS Bach. This allowed for quick registration change which helps make these pieces work. If you're preforming on a two manual harpsichord with a shove coupler, you're in trouble. Single manual harpsichords simply don't work. It is much easier to preform these sonatas on the piano because you don't need to worry about registration, just hit the notes. What ever you play these sonatas on, remember to have fun with them and don't take them too seriously. Your audience will appreciate that!

    Excellent edition of JC Bach's early piano works. I agree with the previous review. These were written for piano and not harpsichord, although they do sound very good on the clavichord as well. In fact the first performances were given on a piano at the time. I will add...

    that this is an excellent edition and worth the investment. Not only is this music a treasure to play, it is also a fine example of early classical-period writing. Mozart heard these sonatas during his trip to London with his father and incorporated some of the music from the early sonatas into his piano concertos. Like all Henle editions, this music has easy to negotiate page turns which have been incorporated into the engraving. Henle takes the time to work these out, unlike other publishers/printers who basically hack the music so it fits causing difficulties with page turns when reading and site-reading music.
