Farewll to my Silbermann Clavichord Wq 66. Bach wrote this lyrical Rondo in 1781 when he gave his clavichord to his pupil, Dietrich Grotthuss. You will see that it makes considerable use of the expressive vibrato ('bebung') which can be produced on the clavichord by varying the pressure on a key after you have played it. The notation for this ornament is three dots with a slur over the top, placed above the note. Sadly this effect cannot be reproduced from a piano.
01 Allegro Wq 63 numbers 7 to 12, Sei Nuove Sonatine. These were published in 1787as an appendix to the third edition of Bach's treatise on keyboard playing (Versuch über die wahre Art das Clavier zu spielen).

Although described as six sonstinas, the pieces in the order of publication seem to provide two three-movement sonatas,with appropriate movements in related keys.

This is a very literal transcription; it is interesting to compare it with the luscious transcription by Rachmaninoff, which makes full use of two hands.

Pastorale This work was first published (in about 1811) as the first movement of the Divertissement no 2 for Piano quintet (Hopkinson no 14). A solo version (1815) appeared as the first of "Three Romances", and is included among standard editions of the nocturnes, as number 8. The edition reproduced here has a new coda, and is from rather later. The cover reads "The much Admired PASTORALE for the PIANO FORTE as played by the Author at the Philharmonic Concert on Monday the 27th. Feby. 1832". This concert took place during Field's final visit to England.
Rondo in A This work was first published (in about 1811) as the second movement of the Divertissement no 2 for Piano quintet (Hopkinson no 14). A solo version appeared in 1817 (Hopkinson 38)
Johann Caspar Ferdinand FISCHER 01 Prelude & Fugue in C This collection of 20 Preludes and Fugues for Harpsichord or Organ was published by Fischer in 1702, under the title Ariadne Musica.

The title refers to the well-known myth in which Ariadne provides Theseus with a ball of string. This enabled Theseus to mark his route through the labyrinth at Minos and so find his way back after killing the monster at the centre. Fischer was implying that his work would provide invaluable help to musicians struggling with the "maze" of organ music, - and especially with the system of major and minor keys which at that time was in the process of replacing the system of eight church modes which had previously formed the basis for tonality.

Ariadne Musica was very popular, and a second edition appeared in 1715. JS Bach was evidently an admirer: it was in 1725 that the first volumer of Das Wohltempierte Klavier was published. Bach not only copied the idea of a collection of Preludes and Fuges in a variety of keys but also paid the tribute of hinting at Fischer's themes from time to time (Compare for example Fischer's fugues in E major and F major with Bach's E major Fugue in WTK2 and F major fuge in WTK1).

Of course Bach's masterly collection has eclipsed Fischer's modest set of pieces: indeed many keyboard players nowadays are unaware of the existence of this predecessor which certainly deserves to be credited with establishing the whole genre of collections of preludes. They are also well worth playing for their own sake, and I hope that you will enjoy exploring them.
