The Amazing
Johann Sebastian Bach

This German composer and organist was born in Eisenach in 1685 and died in Leipzig in 1750. At the age of ten, he lived with his older brother Johann Christoph.

His three years of study, which began in 1700 at St. Michael’s Church, proved fruitful under the guidance of composer and organist Georg Böhn. In 1707, he married Maria Barbara Bach, a cousin.

The position of Kapellmeister at the court of Anhalt-Cöthen was awarded to Bach in 1717 (by this time, he had already written many extraordinary church cantatas). Then, in 1723 the cantorship at St. Thomas’s became Bach’s new job and he remained there for the rest of his life.

An Amazing Bach Fact

Bach became much more famous fifty years after his death, when his Well-Tempered Clavier was made readily available (1801). Mendelssohn’s 1829 performance of his St. Matthew Passion was also a major contribution to the revival of Bach’s music.
