Sinfonia in E minor (Wq 178)
Add to calendarCarl Philip Emanuel Bach was highly esteemed by his followers: Haydn explained that Carl Philip Emanuel was his only stylistic role model. Mozart regarded him as “the father – we are the children”. Beethoven believed that his works “should be owned by every true artist, not only for pleasure, but also to study them.”
The Symphony in E minor (Wq 178) was the only one of the nine symphonies he composed in Berlin that was published during his lifetime. His music was a step towards clean lines and crisp contrasts and paved the way for Viennese classical composers such as Haydn and Mozart. The symphony in E minor is a shining example of “the sensitive style” that became a hallmark of C P E Bach.
