Album Description  
Andrew Manze pays tribute to one of Mozart’s greatest influences - Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. Of C.P.E., Mozart is reported to have said, “He is the father, we are the children. Those of us who do anything right, learned it from him.” Despite the long shadow cast by his father Johann Sebastian Bach, C.P.E. became a leader among the group of Eighteenth Century composers who were creating music in a daring new manner. His progressive style is evident in his concertos as well as his symphonies. In 1768, after three decades at the royal court of King Frederick the Great, C.P.E. finally moved on to take over the post of Musical Director of five main churches in Hamburg from his godfather George Philippe Telemann. No longer restricted by the conservative tastes of his employer, he was able to indulge in a more experimental kind of music. J.F. Reichardt, one of the most important music critics of the Eighteenth Century, praised the "original and audacious progression of ideas and the great variety and novelty in the forms and modulations" of Bach's Symphonies. Andrew Manze writes, “...like a modern enfant terrible, Bach has put dogma to one side. He seems to be trying to shock the listener... What other composer would modulate from a D-major first movement to an E-flat-major second? Looking at the progress of music in central Europe, Carl Philipp is an important, not to say essential figure in the line of decent from his father, the reactionary Bach, to Beethoven the revolutionary.”
