Anniversary year 2014

On the 8th of March, 2014, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach passes his 300th birthday. Johann Sebastian Bach's second eldest son is the most important representative of the musical sentimental movement, that finds itself at home in between the baroque epoch and the Vienna classic. C. P. E. Bach's body of work is incredibly diverse. It includes a variety of musical styles of instrumental music, including symphonies, chamber music, piano sonatas, pieces for solo instruments as well as ecclesiastic and worldly vocal music of all genres.

Celebrate with us! The Bach-cities as well as numerous other German cities are organizing concerts and events, a 185 so far, for the anniversary year. It will be a diverse and stimulating program!
