The World's Greatest Music
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.’
C.P.E. Bach was portrayed by the German actor Wolfgang Liebeneiner in the 1941 biopic of his brother, 'Friedemann Bach', who was depicted as a gifted son trying to escape his father's shadow.
