The Great Composers Podcast - a classical music podcast

Welcome to The Great Composers Podcast! Thank you for listening

Jun 19, 2016

Ep. 4, The Life of JS Bach, "Old Man Bach, The Twilight of a God" brings us to the end of the great man's life and to the beginning of his immortality. As Bach grew to old age, his music slowly faded out of fashion and appreciation for his great musical achievements diminished. Even so, he would continue his work, dedicated as always to spirits greater than his own, and press on towards musical godhood.
