Johann Gottfried Eckard

A German pianist and composer who took his early lessons in the “Versuch” of C. P. E. Bach. He was taken up to Paris with the piano manufacturer Johann A. Stein. Eckard applied piano in his free time and quickly created his technique and simple playing. He performed extremely effectively in concert and obtained much aplomb and several learners. Grimm and Leopold Mozart both praised his function in structure and functionality. Eckard was extremely regarded throughout his profession. As the initial Parisian to create key pad sonatas for piano, and understanding that piano functionality would eventually end up being the trend gave Eckard a location in musical background. Only three functions were released which presented sonatas and variants. Although created for the harpsichord Eckard offered clear signs that they may be played within the piano. Compositionally the functions demonstrate the impact of Bach and foreshadow the past due functions of Mozart and Haydn. The powerful indications within the music demonstrate the seriousness with which he regarded as the piano like a single device as harpsichords had been and so are dynamically impotent.
