Summary
"J.S. Bach composed some of the best-loved and most moving music in Western culture. In this book Peter Williams revisits Bach's biography through the lens of this music. Reviewing all of Bach's music, collection by collection, to reveal the development of Bach's interests and priorities. While a great deal has been written about the composer's vocal works, Williams gives the keyboard music its proper emphasis, revealing it as crucial to Bach's biography, as a young organist and a mature composer, as a performer in public and teacher in private, and as a profound thinker in the language of music."-- book jacket
