J. S. Bach [electronic resource]: A Concise Biography

This program for the Famous Composers series introduces the life and work of the famous German composer J.S. Bach, starting with an overview of his family and the political and religious landscape of the time. Bach learned the violin at a young age and grew up around organ music in churches. He was soon earning money singing and successfully developing his musical talents as well as his scholarly mind. By seventeen he had been well-educated and obtained an appointment as choir master, but he neglected his duties with the mediocre talent of the young boys. The Duke of Saxe Weimar eventually created a comfortable post for Bach conducive to composing and teaching, leading to his success.

Johann Sebastian Bach [electronic resource]

His playing too advanced for small-town churches, his cantatas far more complex than those of his contemporaries (and thus under-appreciated), Bach initially found his genius thwarted. This program surveys the amazing achievements of the man of whom Beethoven said: "Not brook but ocean should be his name." Interviews with cellist Pablo Casals and organist Pierre Cambourian complement an array of selections from Bach's music, such as Pascal Roge playing Prelude No. 16 of The Well-Tempered Clavier; Gustav Leonhardt playing Fugue No. 12 from The Art of Fugue; and Karl Richter conducting the St. Matthew Passion, Brandenburg Concerto No. 1, and Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor.
