“The best thing about history  is the enthusiasm that it stirs up.” Johann Wolfgang Goethe
BACH’S WEIMAR SONS
In Weimar the two most famous Bach son’s were also born: Wilhelm Friedemann (lovingly nick-named “Friede” or “Peace” by his father), on 22 November 1710, and Carl Philipp Emanuel on 8 March 1714.
Wilhelm Friedemann Bach
Bach wrote his “Clavierbüchlein vor Wilhelm Friedemann” for his oldest son for study purposes. It includes the internationally recognised “Grammar of the Piano”: the inventions and symphonies; probably also some pieces composed by Friedemann himself – early evidence of his composing talent. Of the Bach sons, Wilhelm Friedemann followed in his father’s footsteps the most intensively, as a sovereign composer both in the counterpoint style of his father and brilliantly reflecting the new, “gallant” style of his own epoch, as the superior organist of his age and as a renowned improviser. His younger brother Carl Philipp Emanuel would comment one day: “He could better replace our father than all the rest of us combined.”

The BACH BIENNALE WEIMAR 2012 commemorated the 300th birthday of this Bach son by performing many of his works:

Bach Biennale Weimar - W.F. Bach
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
Carl Philipp Emanuel, the godchild of Bach’s close friend Georg Philipp Telemann, became one of the most successful composers of his time – we refer to him when we speak of the “great Bach” of the mid- and late 18th century. 

His long life also took him to Hamburg, where he took part in shaping the culture of this Hansa City for two decades. He also cultivated active contact to poets, writers and philosophers of his time, including Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock and others. He played a key role in his historical position between the baroque and classic periods as well – his music opens the door into the new epoch of Beethoven and Haydn. The latter belonged to C.P.E. Bach’s greatest admirers. 

The BACH BIENNALE WEIMAR 2014 will feature the 300th birthday of this Bach son with an emphasis on his works. The Festival 2014 will be presented in cooperation with the City of Weimar, the New Bach Society Leipzig, the Thuringian Bach Weeks, among others.
