Arguably the world’s most famous musician, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) produced over 1,100 pieces of music in his lifetime, a legacy that continues to inspire musicians and audiences around the globe. A “Bach Akademie” is a German term, and indeed a tradition, for a collection of musical events and other activities focused on the study of Bach and his influence in his time and ours.
