Against the scientific revolution’s backdrop, many eighteenth-century writers, artists and composers turned to fantasy as an antidote to the dictates of realism and rationality. CPE Bach’s influential fantasies helped establish a style of rhapsodic composition that was extensively developed in the following century.

Isabelle Faust and Andreas Staier explore fantasy pieces by Bach and Schumann in company with the genial lyricism of Brahms’s late Sonata Op. 120 No. 2.
