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.’
Through the later half of the 18th century, the reputation of Emanuel Bach was very strong. Mozart said of him, ‘He is the father, we are the children.’ Haydn studied his work and Beethoven expressed the highest admiration and regard for his music. Later composers to be inspired by his music included Mendelssohn and Weber.
