Johann welcomed Carl Philip Emanuel Bach into his musical family on March 8, 1714.  CPE Bach was a very important composer as he pushed through the transition from the Baroque time period, and was one of the key founders for the Classical Era. Among other skills, he was one of the most amazing harpsichordist of his time.  He is the second son born to Johann and Maria Barbara Bach.  He leaves behind a great legacy of amazing music.  Take a minute to sit back in your chair, and breathe in deeply the genius of CPE Bach.
