Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity.
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.
