Complete Works for Two Fortepianos / W.F.Bach & J.G. Müthel ; performed by Geoffrey Lancaster and James Huntingford.
This disc represents a cultural 'coming of age'; fortepianists Geoffrey Lancaster and James Huntingford have teamed up to produce what can only be described as the most remarkable recording to have been released by any early instrument specialists in Australia--it will be a long time before the transcendental virtuosity, artistry and stylistic insights heard on this CD are equalled within the Australian 'early music' world. If you haven't heard Müthel's duos, you haven't lived. The eighteenth-century English music historian, opinion-maker and persuasive advocate of German music Dr Charles Burney did not hesitate to rank these works as 'among the greatest productions of the present age.' Likewise, WF Bach's 'concerto' for two keyboard instruments is breathtakingly dazzling--this should come as no surprise, for the work is a product of the genius of JS Bach's most gifted son.
