Sonatas and character pieces
Clavichord; harpsichord; keyboard; or piano
Composed by Carl Friedrich Christian Fasch. Edited by Christopher Hogwood. Playing score. Published by Edition HH Music Publishers (HH.HH301.SOL).
Item Number: HH.HH301.SOL
The second volume of keyboard music from the reclusive Carl Fasch contains two unpublished sonatas (one unusually in the key of B flat minor) and his considerable output of "character pieces", short descriptive works which justify contemporary opinion that he was the true successor to C.P.E. Bach. These individual vignettes are ideal for playing on either clavichord or fortepiano and provide an expressive foil to the more extrovert and extended sonatas in the first volume. The third and final voume will contain all Fasch's keyboard variations.
