Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-84) was one of the most outstanding, yet at the same time, most idiosyncratic composers of his time. His work reflects his ambitious attempt to assimilate his father's legacy and to develop it further to suit the taste of his own generation. This becomes apparent in his keyboard music - from the early works to the late sonatas and fantasias. The oldest Bach son delights US here with his appealing synthesis of highly complex baroque and sensitive gallant styles. Léon Berben's inspiring performances profoundly emphasize the significance of this music and continue the Carus series of works by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach.
