Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach (1714-1788)

From Composer of the Week, 9:00 am on 2 March 2014

CPE Bach Anniversary 2014 edited.

Johann Sebastian Bach trained his sons to be successful musicians.

In his time composer and keyboard player Carl Philipp Emmanuel eclipsed the fame of his father and published an influential manual on playing technique.

His life saw the development of the fortepiano which was much more versatile and expressive than previous keyboards.
