Notes and Editorial Reviews

Several years after his father’s death, CPE Bach wrote that “[the Six Sonatas for Violin and Harpsichord] … are among the best works of my dear departed father. They still sound excellent and give me much joy, even though they date back more than fifty years.” And indeed they are a pleasure to listen to, not least because of their eminently singable lines- especially those of the adagio movements, of which Carl Philip Emanuel made special note. The sonatas were composed during J.S. Bach’s tenure as court Kapellmeister in Cothen. Described as “genre-bending” by the National Post, and “intrepid” by the Globe and Mail, Mark Fewer has performed around the world to critical acclaim in virtually every role asked of a violinist, from the early Read more baroque to the avant-garde. As one of today’s busiest musicians in the field of Early Music, Hank Knox is hailed internationally for his “colorful, kinetic performances” (AllMusic Guide) which “abound in vitality” (Early Music America).
