Programme

The year 2013 was marked by the celebrations of two composers’ 200th birthdays: Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner. Now, in 2014, it is time to celebrate the 300th birthday of a man whose compositions were no less influential: Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. The Orchestra Academy is dedicating a concert programme to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach’s second oldest son, born in Weimar in 1714 – and in so doing is opening up a chapter in Berlin music history. The composer – often called the “Berlin Bach” – served King Frederick II of Prussia for 30 years. He was not able to exert a lasting influence on Berlin’s musical life: “Old Fritz” preferred composers whose music was in the tradition of the old-fashioned opera seria. Nonetheless, during his lifetime Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s abilities were known far beyond the bounds of Berlin, and in 1768 earned him the title of musical director of the city and cantor at the Johanneum in Hamburg. Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven respectfully paid tribute to his music, which, deploying excellent compositional artisanry, unashamedly sounds subjective tones. Things then went quiet around the composer, who died in 1788 in Hamburg – until he was rediscovered in the 20th century as an intermediary between the Baroque and classical eras. With Reinhard Goebel at the helm, one of the key representatives of the early music scene will be heading up this Orchestra Academy concert, devoted completely to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s Berlin years.
