The eldest son of JS Bach, he was considered by both his father and brothers to be the most gifted musician the Bach family had ever brought forth.  Originally written for flute duet, this piece is an extraordinary example of two-part canonical writing, not only of technical perfection, but of emotional depth.  The first movement is Allegro Moderato, while the second movement is Lamentabile, and is as tragic in expression as its title.
