The recording is simply not good enough. And the conductor does not show us what he want with the recording. A small orchestra that Somethimes overshadows the harpsicord does not better the situation. The soundpicture is strange.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Beyond His Father's Shadow 25 Feb. 2012
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bach's eldest son Wilhelmm Friedemann struggled professionally and personally in his life, and many critics who have forgiven him for selling off his father's works still place him firmly in his dad's shadow. This collection reveals a composer equally influenced by his famous father's athletic, technically polished works as well as the easy lines and lighter textures developing around him. At the same time W.F. Bach sticks to his own melodic and thematic guns. The first movement of the F minor concerto surges forward over hammering sturm und drang chords, before inserting keyboard fireworks and ensemble counterpoint that do the elder Bach proud. The Concerto in F is a more modern outing, playing sunny orchestral passages off against Galant solo episodes, and the "Concerto in F for Two Harpsichords" unfolds as a tuneful dialog between two unaccompanied keyboards. Harmonices Mundi's one player per part scoring is intimate, yet powerful enough to keeps things in the hall rather than the chamber. Harpsichordist Claudio Astronio handles his solos with confidence and flair, knowing just where to push the emotional envelope. He illuminates works by an allegedly "transitional" composer and shows that in W.F. Bach's case, influence does not preclude individualism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 8 Nov. 2013
By YevgeniyIgorovich - Published on Amazon.com

Excellent playing. I love WF's compositional style. The erratic shifts in melodies and the harpsichord's virtuosity are accentuated by WF. His musical style is very unique and he's one of my favorite composers of all time! If you like JS Bach's music give his eldest son's a listen, you won't be disappointed.
