There are several reasons to read a biography about Johann Sebastian Bach. Of course, this is not the reason to want to know details about his life. Such a consideration hardly arises, however, if you are also interested in other exciting people, because then usually the youngest is the most interesting or there is only one really good.
With Johann Sebastian Bach everything is different! Everything! This also applies to a biography about him. Or better: in all biographies about him. You can want to read more about Johann Sebastian Bach because you want to have a good time. You can want to read about him because you want to see every aspect of his life illuminated by the very latest in science. But you can also want to read a biography about your life because you want to be entertained. And it's entertaining, exciting and good. Or you want an entertaining overview. Beyond that one can want to experience the spirit of the time of the last centuries. Or experience the perspective from the year 1750, the year of the death of Johann Sebastian Bach.

And it is precisely on these points of view that my small selection of biographies on Johann Sebastian Bach is based. A historical edition is enough - in my opinion - and if you would like it to be top detailed and up to date, then the two-volume Spitta will take you much further - but I wouldn't recommend it, because if you want it to the point exactly, then only a current work comes into question ... and this is the work of Christoph Wolff, the Bach expert of our century.
The necrology of 1750 is pure and quite short entertainment. And it is very superficial in the sense of the detailed transmission of the many small events. Nor can it provide detailed information, as it is only 45 minutes long. This necrology is pure zeitgeist. It leads back to the time of Leipzig in the year 1750.
Thus 3 types of Bach biography are discussed and a link leads them shortly to more information, more detailed, because so you do not make yourselves no picture. Not yet. There are still two genres: the sweetest and the most exciting. And these are crystal clear and without long consideration Ester Meynell's "Kleine Chronik der Anna Magdalena Bach". Unfortunately it is no longer printed, but it is so good that we would read it again "used" at any time. And it is Klaus Eidam's biography "The true life of Johann Sebastian Bach": That really creates tension. Clicking here will take you to more detailed information on the basis of this page.
