The interest of guitarists concerning the possibility of transcribing works by C.P.E. Bach can be described as very lukewarm. Until a few decades ago, the limited knowledge and consideration of the composer in the field of historiography did not encourage guitarists to explore his work.
Finding eighteenth-century keyboard music which can adapt to the modern guitar is a stimulating undertaking but not without risks and misunderstandings. Historically, the attention of the performers has focused almost exclusively on Domenico Scarlatti, especially for the guitar references and suggestions present in his Sonatas, which are works studied and transcribed with broad consensus and justified reasons.
The knowledge of the greatness of C.P.E. Bach here urges the commitment to expand the possibilities of transcription of the eighteenth-century repertoire, giving the guitar further expressive skills.
Finally, it should be remembered that adaptation and transcription have always been a lively and bright exercise for many instrumental categories and throughout the entire history of music, always accompanying compositional practice, enlivening and stimulating it.
