Description: When first issued 15 years ago, this represented the complete symphonies of W.F. Bach (others known to exist had probably disappeared into the Soviet Union with the archives of the Berlin Singakademie after World War II and, if they've been returned, they've not been recorded yet). Whether stand-alone works like the four-movement Dissonant or single-movement works prefacing cantatas, the stylistic heterogeneity and interest in new ideas mark W.F. out as a worthy partner of his younger brother C.P.E. Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Chamber Orchestra; Hartmut Haenchen. Original 1994 Berlin Classics release.
