The CPE Bach Tradition

C.P.E. Bach was one of the most important composers of the second half of the
18th century, particularly admired as a teacher and composer of keyboard works.
A student of his father, Johann Sebastian Bach, his Essay on the True Art of
Playing Keyboard Instruments
was to turn into one of the most influential
treatises, and the first one to refer specifically to the pianoforte as a separate and
distinct instrument.
