Σαν σήμερα, 8 Μαρτίου 1714 γεννήθηκε ο σημαντικός συνθέτης Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, ο πιο ταλαντούχος απ΄τους γιους του Johann Sebastian. Διασημότερος στην εποχή του απ’ τον “συντηρητικό πατέρα”, σημειώνει μια απομάκρυνση από το σύμπαν του μπαρόκ, υιοθετώντας ένα στιλ προσωπικό, ευαίσθητο και με έντονες δυναμικές. Έγραψε κυρίως οργανική μουσική: συμφωνίες, κονσέρτα για διάφορα όργανα, κουαρτέτα και σονάτες. Από τον Heinz Holliger και μέλη της English Chamber Orchestra ακούμε το Solo για Όμποε και Κοντίνουο σε σολ ελάσονα.

On this date, March 8, 1714 the important composer Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was born. He was the most talented of Johann Sebastian‘s sons. More famous than the “conservative father,” in his time, he distances himself from the baroque universe, adopting a personal, sensitive and more intensely dynamic style. His works are mostly instrumental: symphonies, concertos for various instruments, quartets and sonatas. We hear the Solo for Oboe and Continuo in G minor. On the oboe, Heinz Holliger, accompanied by members of the English Chamber Orchestra.

Τα μέρη / The parts: I. Adagio II. Allegro III. Vivace

That image of him with the portrait of his father, Johann Sebastian, next to him, is precious! I’ve often wondered what it would be like having J.S. as a father!

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
