On 8 March 1714 at Weimar, Joh. Seb. Bach received an early birthday present from his wife Maria Barbara, a second son whom they named Carl Philipp Emanuel. CPE grew up immersed in the family’s musical life and received his music education from his Father. He went on to establish in his own right a stellar reputation across Europe for his influential keyboard works.
