Urtext edition, performance notes by Rachel Brown; realization of the figured bass by Terence Charlston; Facsimile reproduction of original manuscripts.

Volume 2 contains six wonderful sonatas, equally worthy of attention.

The two B minor sonatas are a little simpler, opening with beautiful, simple adagios. There are movements here reminiscent of the CPE Bach Hamburger

Sonata, and others with all the wit of the finales of the well-known concertos in G by Quantz and CPE Bach. The G minor, Eb and F major Sonatas are brilliant show pieces.
