Note to You, A; Bach Family, The

01/16/2000

Whenever people talk about the music of the 17th and 18th centuries, they seem to mention somebody named Bach. If it’s not Johann Sebastian, then it’s Carl Philipp Emanuel, Johann Christoph or Wilhelm Friedemann--a remarkable family! Dean Christoph Wolffe of Harvard Univeristy has made some intriguing Bach discoveries recently and he visits with Virginia Eskin to talk about this music dynasty.
