Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-88) was the second son of Johann Sebastian Bach. While the father is, nowadays, by far the best known of this, nevertheless-distinguished family, this was certainly not the case in the Late 18C, when Carl passed away : C P E Bach had, in fact, enjoyed far more celebrity and fame throughout the European continent, than his father ever languished in, during his own lifetime ... This was partly because of the increasing cheapness of printing text, sheet music and, cheaper-imagery, on paper.
That is not to say, that Carl Philipp Emanuel's fame was not deserved ; he is still held up, as one of the greatest composers of the second half of the 18C (- and that IS saying something, even just considering the German-language competition that C P E was up against, let-alone the rest of Europe! -), even if his father's more prolific output is better-known, nowadays.
