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.’
Emanuel Bach passed away in Hamburg on 14 December 1788. He was buried in the Michaeliskirche - the Church of St. Michael - in Hamburg.
