Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714 – 1788) was a German classical period musician and composer. He was a crucial composer in the transition between the baroque and classical periods, and one of the founders of the classical style, composing in the rococo and classical periods. His second name was given in honor of his godfather Georg Philipp Telemann, a friend of Emanuel's father.
