When Mozart proclaimed, “Bach is the father. We are the children!”, he was, surprisingly, referring to CPE rather than JS Bach. During his lifetime, Johann Sebastian never received the acclaim that his genius deserved. In contrast, his son Carl Philipp Emanuel was showered with adulation. This concert contrasts compositions between famous family members. As the contemporary commentator Charles Burney noted in 1773: “There are several traits in the characters of the younger Scarlatti and Emanuel Bach, which bear a strong resemblance. Both were sons of great and popular composers, regarded as standards of perfection by all their contemporaries, except their own children, who dared to explore new ways to fame.”
