Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, born in 1710, was the oldest son of Johann Sebastian, and probably the most ill-fated: he failed to hold down a job, scraped by with teaching, and died in poverty. One may speculate as to the reasons for this, but it may have had something to do with what has been called the anxiety of influence. All the Bach children struggled with their father's mighty example in one way or another, but the process is especially visible in these flute duets, thought to be early works by Friedemann. They veer precipitously between dense contrapuntal writing and lighter movements that presage the changes in style that were sweeping across Germany in the 1730s. This may not result in really coherent music, but it's also never dull. There's a good deal of technically quite difficult music that's confidently handled by flutists Patrick Gallois and Kazunori Seo. There's a fascinating effect stemming from the fact that the instruments carry equal weight throughout, but this is accomplished in different ways. Sample the intricate first movement, with the curious tempo marking of "Allegro e moderato," of the Duet No. 4 in F major, F. 57 for a taste. The rather harsh studio sound from Naxos is a disincentive here, but the album is a worthwhile look into the mind of perhaps the least well-known of Bach's composer sons. © TiVo

Mozart's youthful Flute Concertos, K. 313 and K. 314, and the Concerto for flute, harp, and orchestra, K. 299, may not be obvious choices for a sonic spectacular, but flutist and conductor Patrick Gallois finds enough bright and colorful sonorities in these works to make this recording an audiophile's delight. There is no indication that Gallois or the Swedish Chamber Orchestra use period instruments, yet this almost does not matter in their tasteful performances, which seem in all other respects to observe Classical practices right down to including a harpsichord continuo. The orchestra is expressive and vibrant, and though it lacks the aural sheen that many authentic performances offer, it plays cleanly and with sufficient delicacy and allows the flute its necessary space. As soloist, Gallois keeps his tone in check, perhaps to simulate the more intimate sound of an early flute, and provides his own lively and sensitive cadenzas in K. 313 and K. 314. Also, he collaborates with harpist Fabrice Pierre to produce charming cadenzas full of fanciful repartee in K. 299. This recording was released by Naxos in both standard CD and hybrid SACD formats, with exceptional sound. © TiVo
