Besides two beautiful orchestral suites by Johann Sebastian Bach, ample attention is paid in this program to this year's honoree: his son Carl Philipp Emanuel. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart made a clear statement about this keyboard virtuoso and composer: “Er ist der Vater, wir die Bub’n. Wer von uns was Rechtes kann, hat von ihm gelernt.” (He is the father, we the children. Each of us who is skilled, learned from him.) What could be more convincing than that?
