About

Avant garde. Eccentric. A maniac. Wild and adventurous. Off the wall. Extraordinary. No marketing hyperbole - this is how the players of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment describe Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach and his music.

One of the many children of J S Bach, CPE Bach always lived in his fatherís shadow, and now is an almost unknown figure at least beyond the classical cogniscenti. 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 colour - 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).
