Works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Christian Bach

J.S. Bach was married twice and had 20 children, many of whom died in infancy. Four of Bach’s sons followed in the footsteps of their father and became composers. This concert programs works by the father and two sons. Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach was one of the most influential musicians of his generation. He served as a harpsichordist in the court of Prussian king Frederick the Great. Later he was the director of music at Hamburg. At the time his music was rated higher than his father’s. Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach’ output includes oratorios, symphonies, concertos; his idiosyncratic emotive music made an impact on Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Johann Christian Bach, J.S. Bach’s youngest son, made successful career in Milan and London. After serving as an organist at the Milan cathedral, and producing two operas in Napoli, he settled in London, where he made his name as a composer, performer, teacher and impresario. Eight-year-old Mozart met Johann Christian in London and was fascinated by his music.
