Composed between 1742 and 1744, the Württemberg Sonatas, named after their dedicatee, provide a link between late Baroque and Empfindsamkeit (in German: sensitivity, feeling). This artistic movement precedes the so-called classical period and is characterised for prioritising contrasting moods in its tempos, melodies, and timbral variations. Significantly influenced by the legacy of Bach Senior, for whom Carl Philipp Emmanuel had boundless admiration, these sonatas showcase an elegant inflection in the work of C.P.E Bach felt due to his desire to bring together the emotional expressiveness and mathematical rigour of counterpoint writing. This duality is particularly noticeable between the different movements, as evidenced by Sonata No. 1 in A minor H.30, and the first two movements, Moderato and Andante, which are ample and fluid. These succeed an Allegra assai with a much squarer musical meter.
ECM gifts us an invaluable sonata in his previously unreleased version, recorded by the great Keith Jarrett at Studio Cavelight (New Jersey) in May 1994. Knowing that the American pianist was forced into early retirement by two strokes in 2018, any new release leaves us with a somewhat heartbreaking bittersweet taste. Just like this album, where elegiac and triumphant styles come together as one. Far from bounding and elastic sonorities that are the inimitable trademark of the Köln Concert father, this production, with its spotless sound recording, offers listeners all the joys of a piano with incredible musical roundness. Jarrett's touch is striking; with his subtle understanding of harmonious interplay, his composition really touches the heart. We already knew about Jarrett's biting, unpredictable, and rebellious phrasing. This record proves to be just as brilliant in sobriety and economy and is stunningly beautiful. © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz
