This is a very enjoyable program. Those seriously interested in Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (oldest son of J. S.) will certainly want this for the opportunity to hear this repertoire, since very little of Friedemann's chamber music survives. Others may just want to enjoy some entertaining, inventive late-baroque solo and trio sonatas, extremely well-played by Camerata Koln.

Friedemann apparently wrote all these works very early in his career, during his first professional appointment (organist at the Dresden Sophienkirche, beginning 1733). The latest, the Trio in B-flat, F. 50, was written around 1745.There are four trio sonatas, three for two flutes and b.c. and one for two violins and b.c. One of the trios (F. 49, for two flutes) is a one-movement fragment. The two solo sonatas for flute and b.c. (without Falck catalog designation) were recently discovered and are here given their premiere recordings. Camerata Koln serves up all these tasty treats with their usual energetic, expressive, and polished blend of period style.

Many claim that Friedemann Bach was the most talented of J. S. Bach's sons, and that his lack of greater recognition as a composer stemmed from his personal faults, usually described as centering on alcoholism. Perhaps that is true, but, based on what you will hear on this disc, you won't think Friedemann to be a greater composer than C. P. E. Bach. The music here falls into the "very good" and "enjoyable" categories. It was certainly influenced by Friedemann's father (and, as the notes point out, by Telemann), but it doesn't really exhibit a first-rate genius. You would never compare these sonatas to, say, Handel's early sonatas.
