Bach. Life in Pictures, cover

This lavish picture documentary helps to bridge the 300-year historical gap and vividly brings to life Bach’s personal history. The illustrations, mostly in color, present Bach’s life from his beginnings in Eisenach, Ohrdruf and Lüneburg, through his years as an organist in Arnstadt, Mühlhausen and Weimar and his period as Kapellmeister in Cöthen, to his tenure in Leipzig as music director and cantor at St. Thomas’s. The present volume is newly conceived in terms of both content and graphic design, and thus more than merely a revision of volume IV of Bach-Documente (1979).
Moreover, its numerous additional illustrations take the results of recent Bach research into account. Linen with dust jacket. $363
