W.F. was Bach's oldest son, and musical history hasn't been kind to him for a number of reasons. Apparently he had a drinking problem or some other behavioral difficulty, since he seemed to have trouble keeping a job. When his father died, he received a third of his music manuscripts and proceeded to sell or pawn them, which is why so many of Bach's cantatas and other works are lost. As a composer his music obviously shows something of his father's influence, and possibly that of alcohol--and many great musicians have been alcoholics. Well, his music is certainly interesting, and these are fine performances. Give them a whirl. ---David Hurwitz, Editorial Reviews


This disc goes a long way to support the idea that Wilhelm Friedemann, despite his personal problems, was the most talented composer of Bach's sons. Indeed, the Suite in G minor included here was long considered to be the work of Sebastian. All of the music performed here has a vitality and craftsmanship that is very appealing. The opening Sinfonia in D has a sound very reminiscent of the Dresden school, and is optimistic and slightly quirky. The highlight for me is the Sinfonia in D minor for two flutes, strings and continuo. It starts with a very slow langorous adagio which employs striking dissonances between the flutes and moves into a fugue of tremendous contrapuntal rigor. Here is where the musical genuis of Wilhelm is most evident as this fugue shows him to be a very good pupil of his father, except that it is made all the more interesting by some shocking harmonic side-steps. The music of Wilhelm Friedemann has never been very well recorded, and this appears to be one of the best programs available. Tafelmusik play flawlessly with great passion and verve. --- scott (Calgary, Canada)
