Notes & Reviews:

Happy Birthday, Wilhelm Friedemann! In celebration of the three hundredth anniversary of the birth of the "Halle Bach" in 2010, Siegbert Rampe is presenting recording premieres of piano compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach's eldest son on original instruments. For his recording of the sonata Siegbert Rampe has selected an original tangent grand piano from 1788, a fortepiano with the tangent action then in use in German-speaking Central Europe. Rampe presents the twelve polonaises and the fantasia on a copy of the harpsichord that Wilhelm Friedemann received as a gift from his father in 1733.

"Rampe has devoted 52 out of 68 minutes to Bach's polonaises. It is amusing to hear so many polonaises in one place, like a procession of strange, fantastically colorful peacocks... Rampe has a true sympathy for this music; and, much to my relief, he delivers it with a healthy dose of whimsy." - American Record Guide

Gramophone Magazine
Rampe's reprises don't exactly amount to re-composition but they sometimes come very close. For the most part this works very well
