Johann Sebastian Bach's music has brought beauty to the world for more than two centuries, but who was this "genius" and what did he have to cope with in order to create his masterpieces? David Gordon is Education Director of the Carmel Bach Festival and a world-renowned performer of Bach's vocal music. He is also a master storyteller with a passionate love of history and a knack for bringing it to life in his lectures. In this two-part series (concluding on June 22) David looks past the clichés surrounding Bach's reputation and delves into the reality of his professional and personal life in the early 18th century. David describes Bach's life—a story filled with tragedy, hardship, and inspiring devotion to art.
Co-sponsored by the Carmel Bach Festival as an introduction to its 71st season, July 19-August 9.
