Piano vs Harpsichord[edit]

I changed "piano" to "keyboard". Can anyone verify the instrument for which this was actually written? (I suspect this is a harpsichord piece that has been miscategorized in modern listings, as is most of his father's harpsichord work.) (talk) 07:40, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Why does this say it requires trained dexterious fingers? I've only been playing Piano for a year and I can play this piece at about 80% speed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:17, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

I would like to agree with that; on the whole, this article (and the piece it describes) isn't exceptionally significant. If I were bolder, I would nominate it for deletion. I know I ought to improve the article instead of griping about it, but a few Google searches later turn up nothing but amateur recordings and pirated sheet music. Anyone know some good studies on CPE Bach? Maybe those could come in handy for this article. Danny Sepley (talk) 05:09, 22 April 2010 (UTC)


I added the specific tempo of the piece -- It notates this as "Presto" on my copy, though I've seen multiple performances at a faster tempo; hence the note about Prestissimo. Webwyre (talk) 13:04, 4 March 2010 (UTC)


Why is Phillip Sear a linked performance? No offense to him, but he does not play at a professional level. I suspect that he linked himself in order to increase his youtube views. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:22, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
