A Celebrating the Tricentenary of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (born in 1714), the most substantial Edition available!
Carl Philipp Emanuel was the most famous son of the great Johann Sebastian. He developed his own musical language, the Empfindsamer Stil, of which the expression of personal feelings, a free and sometimes improvisatory style and the frequent alternation of opposing moods and characters were the keywords. His music can be both charming and vehement, may please or shock the listener, can be simple of complicated: a perfect example of the Sturm und Drang movement of his period.
Carl Philipp Emanuel was a prolific composer, excelling in all known musical genres of his time, except opera. This set offers a wealth of his many compositions: symphonies, concertos for diverse instruments, keyboard music, sacred vocal works and chamber music.
Excellent performances by specialists in the field of the Historical Performance Practice.
A superb set in the grand tradition of Brilliant Classics editions, great quality for an affordable price!
