Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach (1714-88), second son of Johann Sebastian, is perhaps most celebrated for his keyboard music, but the three concertos on this disc arose from his special association with the flute, the result of his 29 years on the musical staff at the court of Frederick II, King of Prussia. Known as Frederick the Great, the monarch ascribed to the ideals of the Enlightenment and made his court in the elegant environs of Potsdam, not far from Berlin. One of his great enthusiasms was the flute, which he played to an impressive level of accomplishment, also composing four flute concertos and over 120 sonatas.
