e're off with the famous Dr. Who and his robotic Dog, K-9, to visit with composer C. P. E. Bach, talented son of the famous Johann Sebastian Bach, in the year 1786. Since the TARDIS is old, clunky and temperamental, just John, a piano student is going along. Herr Bach has some really interesting and cool things to say about his own composing and and his genius father! Read on and you can even hear some of his music!

 

If your sound is on, you're hearing the C.P.E. Bach Solfeggietto for piano. If not you can listen to it by clicking on the title. (MIDI sequence 1995 by Pierre R. Schwob - used with permission)

Carl Philipp Emanuel (C.P.E.) Bach

(born March 8, 1714, died Dec. 14, 1788)
