NEXT tuesday is the 330th birthday of J.S. Bach.
Musicians around the world this month are giving listeners the gift of music with free performances in public spaces – including subways – of some the Bach’s greatest works.
Johann Sebastian Bach is considered one of the greatest and most prolific composers of all time. He crosses the barriers.
He had 20 children. spent a month in prison for angering a boss – and composed “Book One” of the “Well-Tempered Clavier” while there. At the age of 14, Bach received a scholarship to the famous St. Michael’s school in Luneburg near Hamburg, Germany. He reportedly walked the more than 175 miles from his home to the school.
