|Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-1784), list of works|
|The brilliant but dissolute eldest son of J.S. Bach, Wilhelm Friedemann spent much of his early life working as his father's assistant. Upon discovering that world of wealth and opulence that lay outside the rather austere local parish, Friedemann traded on his family's reputation and secured himself a position as the city Kapellmeister of Halle. This action turned out to be a mistake; Friedemann was far too fond of travel for his employers' comfort, and he also belonged to the wrong faith. After his plans to find work elsewhere amounted to naught, Friedemann summarily resigned as Kapellmeister and lived the rest of his days on what income he could scrape together by teaching and composing; in at least one case, he signed his father's name to his own work in hopes that it would bring in more money.|
