Four sons with very different tastes ... J. S. Bach must have been an excellent teacher. The most successful graduates of his school were his sons. On the basis of the compositional craft taught to them by their father, they each developed their very own personal style. And in doing so they exercised huge influence on the development of musical taste between 1750 and Viennese Classicism. Whether Haydn, Mozart or Beethoven – all invoked the »London Bach«, Johann Christian, and the »Hamburg Bach«, Carl Philipp Emanuel. Of the latter, Mozart enthused » He is the father, we are the sons. If any of us can do anything right, we learned it from him.« In the Fruits of Bach series, numerous and diverse works by all four Bach sons feature on the programme – either together with works by their father or in a broader family context.
