Avant garde. Eccentric. A maniac. Wild and adventurous. Off the wall. Extraordinary. No marketing hyperbole - this is how the player of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment describe Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach and his music. One of the many children of JS Bach, CPE Bach always lived in his father's shadow, and now is an almost unknown figure at least beyond the classical cognoscenti. How can such an unknown be considered a game changer? a listen to his music reveals just why - it constantly shifts, wrong footing the listener when they least expect it with wild changes of direction and color - it is bright, effervescent, and is a fascinating link between the music of his father (and the Baroque era) and Joseph Haydn (and the Classical era).
