This book is aimed toward a musical audience, those who understand what makes a concerto great, or how harmony and melody differ, rather than one looking to understand more about Bach from a historical perspective. It provides a brief, encyclopedic overview of his life and death, then delves into discussions on his music and what makes him shine in his roles as composer and teacher.
