Description

C.P.E. Bach's Solfeggio (also commonly known as Solfeggietto) provides a thrilling sprint for the fingers around the keyboard in 60 seconds of pure musical energy. The title, referring to the solfège exercises commonly given to singers, indicates a piece that is designed to develop technique. But the panache with which Bach flies through the scales and arpeggios of this piece make it both a satisfying and highly-effective practice piece as well as a reliable concert showstopper for pianists moving past the first stages of learning. This new Urtext edition has been produced by the internationally renowned C.P.E. Bach expert Wolfram Enßlin and brings together the highest level of musicology with a beautifully prepared and practical edition. Contains a preface and critical commentary in German, English and French.
