C.P.E. Bach [March 8, 1714 – Dec. 14, 1788]

From Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach – Wikipedia: ” … was a German Classical Period musician and composer, the fifth child and second surviving son of Johann Sebastian Bach and Maria Barbara Bach.

C. P. E. Bach was an influential composer working at a time of transition [Rococo Period] between his father’s Baroque style and the Classical style that followed it.”
