About this album

C.P.E.Bach Sonata in g minor, Wt 135 One of the most important things that J.S. Bach wanted to leave his children was education. He felt the burden of not having a university diploma when he moved to Leipzig to assume the post of kantor of the Thomasschule in 1723. Despite the council’s choice of Bach for the post above five other candidates, it did not hesistate to deplore him as a third- rater, a mediocrity…. who is unable to teach Latin (The New Grove Dictionary of Music). One can conclude that, although J.S. Bach held this position until the end of his life, his time there must not have been without problems. Perhaps this berating contributed to his determination to have his sons receive a higher education.
