C.P.E. Bach - Wiener Urtext Edition
The Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Wien will be celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach on 23 April at the Musikverein Vienna.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s works for violin and harpsichord obbligato pervade his entire compositional oeuvre. The earliest works, like the Sonata in D minor still numbered BWV 1036, date back to the years of study with his father, yet show already a remarkable creative will of his own. The latest work, the fantasia ‘C. P. E. Bachs Empfindungen’ in F sharp minor of 1787 is characterised by the composer's highly expressive late style.

Carl Philipp Emanuel BachWiener Urtext Edition has released a new two-volume edition of C. P. E. Bach’s complete works for harpsichord (piano) obbligato and violin, two of which will be performed at the Musikverein. Find out more about Bach’s works for violin and harpsichord here.
