In 1774 C.P.E.Bach enthused that these Sei Suonate à Cembalo certato è Violino Solo sound very good even now even though they are over fifty years old. Of these four Sonatas the E major will be the most familiar as well as the most demanding. This virtuosity shows itself in the first movement in the violin’s thirty-second note garlands and in the dense harpsichord texture, while the Adagio is reminiscent of the middle movement of the E major Violin Concerto. The joyful final movement verges on the limit of the playable. Here we have two masters playing music by one of the greatest masters of all.
