Johann Sebastian Bach
This series of biographies of famous composers and musicians aims to introduce young readers of 10-14 to the world of music. The books feature the story of the life of the composer, but woven into each book will be educational themes such as the form of a symphony, the development of particular instruments and the techniques of composition. The books will also cover the role that personal and political beliefs played in the lives of composers. his musical genius. He was deeply religious and music, to Bach, was a supreme gift of God. Essentially a private, family man, Bach led an unremarkable life, marrying twice and having twenty children, not uncommon for the eighteenth century. But through his remarkable gift, Bach could not live life unnoticed. He was drawn into many embittered disputes with his employers, as he strove to compose in his own style, extending the boundaries of music and leaving a legacy of great musical works for the world.
