The Nekrolog is the first of some 700 biographies published since Bach's death in July 1750 and published by hundreds of publishers. It reads in about half an hour and is therefore a very detailed obituary. As the first biography, it is of course one of the very short ones. However, it is based on the memory of two musicians who could not be closer to Johann Sebastian Bach: that is first Bach's son-in-law Altnikol and second Bach's son Carl Philipp Emanuel. Kolof de Mitzler was the third in the group of authors. From this biography, all the following biographers had their basis of knowledge. The fact that a few insignificant facts could later be corrected by research plays no role in this listening pleasure.


Who is this audio collage for, even if you can read it for free on "Bach on Bach"? It is for music or Bach enthusiasts who enjoy the presentation: who enjoy the text read aloud in ancient German, the sometimes difficult to understand sentence structure and the choice of words from 1750. The sections are interrupted by Bach's best-known and most popular musical works, all of which you can listen to – and listen to in full – on "Bach on Bach". You can hear what the narrator of this offer sounds like and how the mix sounds in an audio sample.
