Pawel writes “It’s a nice juxtaposition of father and son, inspired by James Gaines’ book “An Evening in the Palace of Reason”, especially starting with that Ricercar that was a test for JS Bach, most likely devised by his son. And I adore the French Ouverture.
Also I would like to record it later this year, so it would be great to play it.”
