best CPE Bach piano tune
on: June 16, 2017, 12:05:18 AM
I'm reading more in Mozart and Haydn these days, primarily for fun, but also to try to improvise better in late baroque style.

Yeah, the solfeggio, whatever.

But what's a good, representative work that I can just sight-read and gain some insight into that odd transitional time?p
My name is Nellie, and I take pride in helping protect the children of my community through active leadership roles in my local church and in the Boy Scouts of America.  Bad word make me sad.

There is obviously not going to be anything 'representative' in a 'transitional' period.  CPE's career is a joy of innovation.  Check out WF.  Much of his keyboard works are about riffs and he's a far superior composer to CPE.  Dresden was a big scene - you want the Graun brothers and Hasse for that.  Also there are very good reasons why Frederick the Great (he coined that himself!) wasn't interested in JS.
B Mus, PGCE, DipABRSM
