The fifth child of J.S. Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714–1788) was a highly influential composer whose music made a big impact on the period between his father's Baroque style and the Classical and Romantic styles that followed. Mozart said of him, ‘He is the father, we are the children.’
The 300th anniversary of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s birth is being marked in 2014. All six German Bach cities – Hamburg, Potsdam, Berlin, Frankfurt (Oder), Leipzig and Weimar – are hosting a wide range of concerts and other activities to mark the occasion.
