Wilhelm Friedemann Bach was renowned as a brilliant improviser and keyboard performer. His keyboard sonatas, filled with quirky contrasts and a more adventurously chromatic and exploratory style than that of his contemporaries, attest to his individualism and virtuoso technical skill. His only Suite reworks and expands his father, J.S. Bach’s models, turning conventional dance movements into character pieces. W.F. Bach’s enthralling and unexpected twists and turns create an expressive and unique musical language, performed by the ‘wonderful’ Julia Brown. (Fanfare on 8570530, W.F. Bach Keyboard Works Vol. 2)
