C.P.E. Bach – Sonata in g-minor for oboe and harpsichord – Wq 135 (1/3)



‘The Sonate for oboe and continuo in G minor was written in 1735 in Frankfurt an der Oder where, according to his own admission Emanuel Bach participated in all the town and university musical events. Even this early work enables us to discuss the stylistic differences between the music of C.P.E. Bach and that of his father. Despite the fact that Emanuel retains the typically baroque forms of the movements and demonstrates skilfull mastery of polyphony, the texture of his music is lighter and more transparent (the continuo is played by the harpsichord alone), the themes are more homophobic and less ornate, while the harmony is not so concentrated as is that of Johann Sebastian.’

Qauchtemoc: I am aware of the fact that Bach wrote a piece for flute and harpsichord. BWV 1020
I am also aware of another piece with Wq 135 as number.
I simply do not know what’s right and wrong. The CD says it’s CPE Bach and Wq 135 belongs to this piece.
I really don’t care, simply I do not know. You may do, or not. Just enjoy please.
