Penguin Guide, January 2009

Wilhelm Friedemann was the oldest (and favourite) son of Bach: the first book of the ‘48’ was written for him. He combined rich melodic invention and originality of harmony with a highly personal expressive style and these are much in evidence in the Polonaises. In this admirable recording, the American scholar Robert Hill uses a reconstruction of a Florentine fortepiano of 1720 in the manner of Bartolomeo Cristofori. His playing has great flair and style and it makes out the strongest case for this interesting and individual master. Excellent recorded sound too.
