Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710‐1784) was the first son of Johann Sebastian Bach and Maria Barbara Bach. He was taught by his father and soon he became proficient on several instruments. Although he was an organist for 20 years in Halle, he was one of the first musicians who strived for an independent life, trying to earn his living as a composer, performer and teacher. He struggled all his life, not helped by his difficult character, and he died in poverty in Berlin, totally forgotten.

Wilhelm Friedemann’s organ works stand between two worlds: that one of his father in their strict counterpoint and structures, and the world of Sturm und Drang, with their experiments, extravagances and emotional outbursts. In any case the organ works are fascinating creations of a romantic and tormented genius.

This new recording presents his 4 cycles of Fugues, as well as the 6 Choralvorspiele. Played on a Truhenorgel by Patella (1998) and the famous Zanin organ from 2007 by organist Filippo Turri, who is a specialist in the 17th and 18th century organ works from Germany and Italy.

The booklet contains texts in English by the artist, as well as the specifications of the organs.

Choir & Organ

Admirers of fugues, especially those by Bach’s sons, will find ample interest in this recording of music by Johann Sebastian’s eldest son. This recording accounts for 18 fugues together with seven chorale preludes (also fugal). Filippo Turri links W.F.’s mental torment with the intense chromaticism found in many fugues (a romantic association). The two modern Italian organs sound very different, the three-stop Positive organ (CD 1) sounding remarkably close and ‘chiffy’, tending to disturb the contrapuntal lines somewhat.
