Kevin Densley: ‘In the Manner of C.P.E. Bach’ and ‘Kitchen’

In the Manner of C.P.E. Bach Not in the style of Johann Sebastian, nor Johann Christian, “the London Bach”, and definitely not the way that the restless and dissatisfied Wilhelm Friedemann Bach might have played it, no— play it for me in the manner of “the Hamburg Bach”, Carl Philipp Emmanuel. Kevin Densley   Kitchen Cod is battered. Lamb hammered. Vegetables knifed into pieces. Chickens skewered. Carcasses stripped. Crustaceans boiled, dismembered. Garlic crushed. Strawberries pulped. Even the concrete floor is distressed. Kevin Densley
