The next volume in Peter Watchorn's complete survey of the harpsichord music of Johann Sebastian Bach is devoted to the Inventions & Sinfonias, BWV 772-801, a set of thirty short contrapuntal pieces written for Bach's son, Wilhelm Friedemann. A textbook demonstration of Bach's preferred “cantabile” style, this recording also features the “Bach” tuning, as proposed by Bradley Lehman, and a magnificent German-style harpsichord by Australian master builder, Alastair McAllister.
