Wilhelm Friedemann Bach was renowned as a brilliant improviser and keyboard performer. His keyboard sonatas, filled with quirky contrasts and a more adventurously chromatic and exploratory style than that of his contemporaries, attest to his individualism and virtuoso technical skill. His only Suite reworks and expands his father, J.S. Bach's models, turning conventional dance movements into character pieces. W.F. Bach's enthralling and unexpected twists and turns create an expressive and unique musical language, performed by the 'wonderful' Julia Brown. (Fanfare on 8.570530, W.F. Bach Keyboard Works Vol. 2). Julia Brown is currently Director of Music and Organist at First United Methodist Church in Eugene, Oregon, while also maintaining a full schedule of teaching, performing and recording. She is also active as a harpsichordist, exploring performance practice and early music in chamber music settings.
