Wilhelm Friedemann Bach - Suite in g (1/2)
Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (22 November 1710 1 July 1784), the second child and eldest son of Johann Sebastian Bach and Maria Barbara Bach, was a German composer and performer. Despite acknowledged genius as an organist, improviser and composer, his income and employment finally became unstable and he died in poverty.
This suite has sometimes been attributed to Friedemanns father, Johann Sebastian Bach as BWV 1070, but was in fact MOST certainly composed by Friedemann.
The Kammerorchester 'Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach' plays under Hartmut Haenchen.
