2nd March 2014: Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's birthday

300 years ago, on the 8th March 1714, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was born as the second son of Johann Sebastian Bach. In the service of Frederick the Great, he remained in Berlin and Potsdam for decades. But not as a traditional court musician rather he gained renown as a modern artist, reflecting on this own music, putting his "feelings" onto paper, composing a standard work on the piano as well as organizing concerts. We celebrate C. P. E. Bach with a musical-literary matinee presented in both - words and sounds.
