Bay Atlantic Symphony: Carl Phillipe Emanuel Bach and Christoph Willibald Gluck

Paul Somers, Director of Adult Education for the Bay Atlantic Symphony, will be here Monday, January 13. 

Somers will present a lecture titled “Two Rarely Performed Reformers who Helped Create Classical Style” in the library’s Community Event Room, located on the first floor, from 6-7:30 p.m. 

The lecture will focus on Carl Phillipe Emanuel Bach and Christoph Willibald Gluck. Emanuel Bach, son of Johann Sebastian Bach, is famous for his work during the German classical period. His “sensitive style” approach applied the concepts of rhetoric and drama to musical compositions. Christoph Willibald Gluck is best known for his operas, particularly Orfeo ed Euridice and Alceste.
