All the spirited works on this recording are played with brio and zest. Most relevant to this forum is the pseudo-J.S. Bach work BWV Anh. 188, the Sonata in F for 2 Harpsichords, which was mistakenly attributed to Sebastian because he wrote out a manuscript copy of this piece, which is actually by his son Friedemann. There is not much that is really "J.S. Bachy" about this music, which is more in line with later-18th-century trends in music; but it does show that Sebastian could appreciate music that differed in style from his own. Staier and Hill give this score an energetic and well-paced reading, as well as the two concertos also on this disc.
