Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: Polyhymnia

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach


A collection of Songs for Voice and Keyboard


Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach is rightly regarded as the most important composer of the German art song before Schubert. He set new standards in the interplay of cantabile melodies and expressive piano accompaniment. He was also in personal contact with the great poets of his time – including Gleim, Kleist and Lessing – and shared their interest in the close relationship between literary and musical poesy. In his late years Bach planned a comprehensive selection of his songs, but the project was not completed. This edition follows the original manuscript of his Polyhymnia collection.
