Two internationally acclaimed early-music specialists bring their considerable talents to bear on these lesser-known "accompanied" sonatas by J. C. Bach. Fortepianist Byron Schenkman---whose playing was recently called "dazzling!" by American Record Guide---and flutist Courtney Westcott present a program of this elegant and beautiful music that has been called the forerunner of the high Viennese style of Haydn and Mozart. Also includes the Sonata in C Minor for solo fortepiano. Find out why Schenkman's intense performances have been compared with those of Vladimir Horowitz and Jimi Hendrix!
