Welcome to The Great Composers Podcast! Thank you for listening

Jun 19, 2016

In Ep. 2, The Life of Johann Sebastian Bach pt. 2 'The Maturing Master', we see our hero off to Weimar, where he will play a little organ, lay down a few tunes, and cause some trouble. From there, he will journey to Cöthen and enjoy a few years of tranquility before his real life's work begins in Leipzig!
