Johann Christian Bach’s galant Sonatas Op. 5 of 1766 were composed for the newly-developed fortepiano but are equally suited to the more intimate yet equally expressive clavichord, on which The Juilliard School graduate and internationally-renowned keyboardist Susan Alexander-Max performs them here. The young Mozart so admired ‘the London Bach’ that he adapted Sonatas Nos. 2, 3 and 4 as keyboard concertos. Yet the other three sonatas contain wonderful music in which reminiscences of past musical styles co-exist with pointers to future developments.
