Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-84) enjoyed a reputation of being 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. To mark the 300th anniversary of W.F. Bach's birth, Carus-Verlag is publishing a new critical complete edition of his works, together with CD recordings. The project begins with a program of keyboard music, largely comprising first recordings. Leon Berben's performances emphasize the composer's special synthesis of high-baroque complexitiy and galant, sensitive style.
