In 1747 Johann Sebastian Bach went to visit his son Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach at his post as a harspichordist in the castle of Sans Souci in Potsdam and the King Frederik the Great. During a session of improvisation at the Court, the King, who was a great musician - flutist himself, has given one theme to the father Bach and challenged him to improvise on it, since this one was famous for his improvisation skills. Inspired from this act, the old Bach, once he had come back home to Leipzig, had written down the "Thema Regium"(or the "Theme of the King"). On the same he has composed set of pieces under the title "Das musicalische Opfer", or as Bach inscribed it: "Regis Iussu Cantio Et Reliqua Canonica Arte Resoluta" ("the theme given by the king, with additions, resolved in the canonic style"), and the first letters of each word spell out the word ricercar (an older name for fugue). The Trio Sonata for flute, violin and b.c. presented in this concert is a part of this set of pieces, and originally it is called "Sonata sopr'il Soggetto Reale" (Sonata on the Theme of the King).

Carl Phillip Emanuel Bach is not just the second oldest son of J.S.Bach, but has left remarkable repertoire developing his own musical style, that opens the bridge to the classical period which followed. But the first pieces he composed (and that was at the age of 17!) were very much under influence of his father, whom he admired and who was his musical teacher and advisor.In this manner was his first set of Trio Sonatas (Wq143-147), written in 1731. When he went to work at the court of Frederik the Great (in 1738) most of his early works got revised or completely rewritten, where he started to present his new musical language. The revisions of the Trio Sonatas happened in 1747 (let's remember that this is the same year his father visited him in Potsdam and got inspired by the "Thema Regium"!); in that same year Carl Phillip wrote also his new chamber sonatas known as "Berlin Trio Sonatas", and our choice for this concert (Wq150) is from this latter collection.
