By Bach Carl Philipp Emanuel

Bach C.P.E. sonata for flute and Basso Continuo in E minor (Wq 124, H 551) was written in 1735 during his studies at the University in Frankfurt (Musikalische Akademie) and has distinctive influence of J.S.Bach, the composer's father.

Barthold Kuijken:
C.P.E. Bach had a very strong intelligence next to his sensitivity.
There is always an analytical aspect and choices about structure. Invention and structure, not always following or choosing the easiest path. He knows so very well how to appear emotionally free, or direct, or improvisatory. He must have had a very thorough training in theory with his father: you feel that it’s still
there underneath everything, but he uses it in a completely different way, and he makes his own system out of that. For me, this is still like learning his language. It’s a very strongly constructed language, every aspect has been thought out cleverly and methodically.

Bach Carl Philipp Emanuel

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788) was a German composer, son of J.S.Bach and godson of G.P.Telemann. C.P.E. Bach’s “sensitive style” (empfindsamer Still) marked a transition between baroque and classical style, applying principles of rhetoric and drama to musical structures. C.P.E. Bach was known as “Berlin Bach” to differenced himself from his brother J.C.Bach who was known as “London Bach”. Besides composing, C.P.E.Bach wrote “Essay on the true art of playing keyboard instruments”, thus greatly influencing upbringing of the greatest classical composers: Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.
