Calls on contemporary memoirs and the composer's few surviving letters to draw the portrait of a strong, warm, vigorous, and humorous character who yet remains a creative enigma equalled only by Shakespeare.
Describes the political, religious, and social conditions of early-eighteenth-century Germany, and the musical and cultural influences that helped to shape Bach and his work.
The book gives excellent descriptions of the trials and tribulations and successes of Bach's life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the life of the great composer Bach!
NOTE: The book originally had a bonus CD which is not included in this used book.
