Wilhelm Friedemann Bach at Mosterdzaadje

  • t'Mosterdzaadje Sandpoort-Noord Kerkweg, 29 2071 NA, Sandpoort-Noord Netherlands (map)

Dear Friends we would like to invite you to our next concert on September 11 in Mosterdzaadje concert hall in Sandpoord-Noord. We will perform for you 6 duets by J.S. Bach's eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann Bach. This is an unique opportunity to listen all of them in one concert.

  • No.1 e-minor
    Allegro - Larghetto - Vivace
  • No.2 G-major
    Allegro ma non troppo - Cantabile - Allabreve - Gigue (Allegro)
  •  No.3 E flat -major
    Allegro - Adagio ma non molto - Presto
  •  No.4 F-major
    Allegro e moderato - Lamentabile - Presto
  •  No.5 E flat major
    Un poco Allegro - Largo - Vivace
  •  No.6 f-minor
    Un poco Allegro - Largo - Vivace

These six duets are remarkable set of the smallest chamber music for two flutes, written in the style of the end of Baroque and the beginning of Classical era. Composer treated the both parts of the flutes as equally important voice, so that while one is playing melody, the other won’t hide itself into an accompaniment. Some of these duets were composed in the tonalities that were not often used for the flute music in the 18th century (like E flat major or f minor); these tonalities have more muffled or shadowed tones than the others. This combination of the tonality makes these six duets more interesting and unique among the same repertoire.
