While Johann Sebastian Bach is the undisputed master of baroque music, talent also ran in his family. Bach Extended presents four of JS Bach’s most beloved works alongside two exceptional pieces by his sons Wilhelm and Carl. Both were heavily influenced by their father, but also pushed the boundaries of what baroque music could achieve.

WF Bach’s inventive Duet for Two Flutes features the unmistakable sweet sound of baroque flutes before CPE Bach’s adventurous and beguiling Concerto for Harpsichord and the then new Fortepiano, the first piece written for both instruments to be played together.

JS Bach’s magnificent The Art of Fugue was the last major work before his death and one of the best of its 14 fugues is the Unfinished. Suite No. 3 is one of the composer’s best-known works due to its beautiful second movement known as Air on the G String. His Cello Suite No. 6 is an exceptional work, light and festive in nature, while Chorale Vor deinen Thron, reputedly written on JS Bach’s deathbed, makes for a haunting and evocative finale.
