Notes & Reviews:

It must have been daunting for J.S Bach's musical sons to work with his huge shadow. The fact that four of his children succeeded in becoming important and influential composers is both remarkable and proof of how extraordinary these men were. C.P.E and J.C. Bach are perhaps the most famous of them, and of the other two, J.C.F and W.F, it is Wilhelm Friedemann who perhaps came closest to his father as a composer. His compositions display the same structural density, and in particular the concerto in E flat for 2 harpsichords where many of his father's influences can be detected, together with W.F.'s use of strange dissonances and harmonic shifts.
