Misc. Comments

Probably the composer of this sonata is Christian Ludwig Hien, who is mentioned in Gerber (1790) with following entry: "Cammervirtuose, in Diensten der Herzogin zu Württemberg 1771; rückte von seiner Arbeit eine Klaviersonate in das Bachsche Vielerlei ein,die durch ihren galanten melodischen Charakter sehr von den übrigen abstach. Er soll sich gegenwärtig in Bayreuth befinden." ( The "Bachsche Vielerlei" is the "Musikalisches Vielerley" C.Ph.E. Bach. We find the sonata on page 50, available via Hathi Trust).

yep. and bigger leaps have definitely been made, with reason even. Do you mean btw the Musikalisches Vielerlei? I've heard of that... (though I admit I had to look it up, just now. But as the collection/group of collections, or journal, or something, that saw the publication of, among other things, the first printed editions of a number of CPE Bach's keyboard works, - well, "we" should actually try to digitize/reupload it just for its historical importance, it seems to me- but then again, that's a tangent and neither here nor there :) )
