Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was probably the most famous of the Bach sons. He wrote many works for keyboard instruments, and these form the core of his compositional oeuvre. This volume is the last of Henle’s three-part anthology edition of selections of his piano sonatas, and contains 11 sonatas from between 1760 and 1783, three of them published here for the first time. Many performance instructions from C.P.E. Bach’s important musical instruction book, the “Versuch über die wahre Art das Clavier zu spielen” [Essay on the True Art of Playing the Keyboard], find their way into this volume, including a table in which the most important ornamentation signs and their proper execution are brought together.
