Two cycles that have consistently been receiving high praise from reviewers are Miklós Spányi’s survey of C.P.E. Bach’s Music for Solo Keyboard and of the same composer’s Keyboard Concertos.
After a total of 30 discs, Spányi himself hardly needs an introduction: suffice it to say that he has lost none of his passion for the music or for the clavichord and tangent piano that he performs it on. A recent solo disc (Volume 13, BIS-CD-1328) was greeted with the following recommendation from the reviewer on MusicWeb International: ‘The result is no less than astonishing. This is wonderful music, beautifully played, and I recommend this disk to anyone who loves keyboard music.’ And the critic in the German magazine Toccata was just as enthusiastic about the latest disc of concertos (Volume 14, BIS-CD-1487), with the Finnish period band Opus X: ‘What passion and yielding softness is hidden in this music, combined together with such elegance, and, of course, expertly brought out. My compliments to all involved! More, please!!!’
