Program Notes on Solfeggio in C minor, H 220, W 117/2 by Bach, C.P.E. :

This famous Solfeggio in C minor, H 220, W 117/2 by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was composed in 1766.

It was first published in 1770 as part of the collection Musikalisches Vielerley, of which CPE Bach was himself the editor.

The word solfeggio, as used by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, has approximately the meaning of étude, which was not yet current during C.P.E. Bach's lifetime.

CPE Bach's solfeggio aims primarily at developing technical facility and accuracy, and thus serves a pedagogical goal.

This Solfeggio in C minor, H 220, W 117/2 is appropriate for Grade 8 piano students.

This score is an Urtext edition based on the Musikalisches Vielerley of 1770.

Please note that the notes in small print are editorial as they do not appear in the source.

Such small notes are found in measures 22 to 25, in the left hand and in measures 34 and 35, in the right hand.

Please note also that this score contains suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, a trilled turn) according to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's own indications in his Essay on the True Art of Playing Keyboard Instruments.
