The goal of the project Bach on Bach by Peter Bach Jr. is the spreading of the world cultural heritage of Johann Sebastian Bach. Of course, together with other people and also institutions, choirs, associations and orchestras that have also been doing this for a long time. However, our modern distribution in the 21st century via the medium of the internet is essentially in the foreground. Bach on Bach is aimed at all age groups, but in particular the topic of the Thomas Cantor is also prepared for children and young people.
In contrast to the already abundant in the German-speaking world and sufficient in the English-speaking world to address Bach-interested people at a high level, Bach 4 You as my Renate Bach Verlag and the project Bach on Bach have set out to reach the remaining target group. "Bach 4 You" as well as Bach on Bach want to pave the way into the almost unmanageable matter of Johann Sebastian Bach and above all and especially to introduce with fun to the composer, his work and the genealogy of the huge family of musicians.
Fun is the most important thing, which comes with the goal to introduce the most famous musician of all time. Johann Sebastian Bach is displayed on numerous postage stamps. You may discover all of them on "Bach on Bach".

Did you know that there are about 33 Bach monuments worldwide? The most exotic is certainly in Shanghai, in China, near the main train station. But also the modern Bach sculpture in the Bavarian town of Ansbach, Germany above is almost an insider tip. Of course, you will discover all Bach monuments at "Bach on Bach". As also we discover new Bach monuments little by little, the latest one as late as five years after the start of the project, in a church in Berlin.
There are dozens of Bach portraits and all painters just imagined, what Bach might have looked like.

There are about 700 Bach biographies and new ones are still being written almost every year. However, the most recent ones are not always the best. And much is simply copied from the biographies that appeared earlier. To offer Bach books in general, the Publishing House "Bach 4 You" is much too small ... and it would not pay off either. But there are four exceptions. Firstly, there are two exceptions for reading, which are no longer available for purchase. They are the books by Esther Meynell and Klaus Eidam. My husband Peter thinks they are among the best Bach biographies, and then there are two tiny biographies, that is the Bach Mini Biography and the very tiniest Bach Mini Biography (... in the picture above).
The Bach Genealogy: the beloved playground in our Bach Mission. We research, we discover and we help. A point of honor with "Bach on Bach". Those three up there? Sure, they are also Bachs.

More passengers died on a trip with the "Empress of Ireland" than in the sinking of the Titanic? Yes, and one of them was Johann August Reinhold Bach, the father in the background in the Bach band picture above.

"Bach on Bach" presents all Bach cities and all Bach places. The most important ones even with small, cool videos in German and also in English. All are short, most are even shorter than five minutes. A professional narrates the text, there's music by Bach ... but also modern. And it's a mixture of film and pictures. Why don't you try a Bach video? Maybe you will enjoy it, then there are many, many more.
"He is the father, we are the boys." That said Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart about the composer and fellow musician Johann Sebastian Bach. That's why he's now allowed on this page: Because he's earned it. On "Bach on Bach" you will find not only many, but almost all quotes and tributes from many, many different personalities over the past 270 years, which report about the super composer from Eisenach in Thuringia, Germany or highlight his work.
My husband is a joker, a funny maker, how they called such guys back then in Germany (... not a comedian, it's something different and there is no such word nor a translation existing today). And he guaranties that he "built in" many, many opportunities to smile in his project. "To be serious" is what he leaves to others and there are many of them around. Learn more about him with a click here.
Instead, he tries to reach his audience with his very own style. And that's why there's plenty of everything, but above all also the right information. Checked and researched. But always with lots and lots of nonsense between the lines and sometimes ... even in the lines.
In this sense I would like to greet you here, on my website, very warmly from him.
