I've had this book 'Keyboard Sonatas of the Eighteenth Century - Little Known Masterpieces"' for a long time. A while ago I decided to open it and check it out! They're actually good pieces! I admit there are questionable moments when you think that's probably why they were 'lesser known', nonetheless they're good compositions and fun to play. Highly recommended if you're into Sonatas of that era. I've recorded a few of them but eventually will go through the whole thing.

Sharing a few here. I'm only sight-reading so I'm sure you guys will play them way better.

Sonata in A Major Op. 7, No. 2 by George Berg (3 Movements)

Mov. I:


Mov. II:

I greatly enjoyed the first movement of the Berg and your excellent playing.

Thanks a lot. It's my favorite Sonata from this book so far as well.

I enjoyed your playing and filming very much.

The Berg sonata reminds me a bit of the sonatas of Pietro Domenico Paradies, who was active in England about the same time.

Thanks a lot. I just listened to some of those Sonatas and I see why you say that.
