Abstract:Although there was formerly a tendency to think of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach as merely one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s sons, in the late eighteenth century, Carl Philipp Emanuel was regarded as an influential and unique figure who was distinct from his father. Fortunately, C. P. E. Bach’s compositions now receive their rightful evaluation, both in the scholarly literature and in the performance area. Thanks to research in the second half of the twentieth century and in the twenty-first century, more resources pertinent to C. P. E. Bach scholarship have become available and more analytical studies have been undertaken on individual works and collections. Still, Bach’s Petites pièces, an atypical collection, has remained little discussed in the scholarly literature compared to Bach’s other major keyboard genres. It is hoped that this thesis will contribute to making the Petites pièces more widely appreciated. Specifically, by drawing on Bach’s own statements in his Versuch and fantasias for keyboard, the thesis will advance our knowledge of how Bach integrated his own fantasia style and the French harpsichord tradition in the Petites pièces.
