The author examines the influence of rhetoric on the music composed in the Baroque ages. The elaborated performance extraction and explanation of the Baroque rhetoric figures became a canon for the Baroque composers until the end of 18th century. Tracing the rhetorical expression of C. Ph. E. Bach’s music presumes working out a comprehensive study on his works. This report focuses on the Sonata for flute and harpsichord in E minor as a specific example for carrying out the investigation. Conclusions are drawn for the new harmonic style wherein the figures are interpreted both as linear and vertical structure components
