Who was the young Bach? A rebellious, provocative adolescent? A clever, stubborn careerist? An innovator, as gifted as he was prolific? Certainly a mixture of all three, replies the harpsichordist Andreas Staier in this selection of early works that are anything but run-of-the-mill. This programme shows how Herr Bach, eager to call the music of his time into question, assimilated multiple influences and gave a ‘new look’ to the traditions of north Germany.
Andreas Staier plays a harpsichord by Anthony Sidey after Hass.
