Notes and Editorial Reviews

Wilhelm Friedemann Bach’s works are still mostly unknown to the public at large, and remain in the shadow of those by his brothers. It is true that his music seems to be somewhat strange, imprisoned as it is by the composer’s profound inner drama. Born in 1710, Wilhelm Friedemann benefited more than any other of his brothers from the impact of his father’s personality; we may well remember the famous phrase attributed to Johann Sebastian: “The son that gives me joy is the one that I love.” Wilhelm Friedemann Bach’s works are still mostly unknown to the public at large, and remain in the shadow of those by his brothers.
