The Monument of the Famous Composer Johann Sebastian Bach in Dresden

Many of you are very familiar about this famous German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist of the Baroque period. His name is no other than Johann Sebastian Bach. He was born in Eisenach, Saxe-Eisenach, on 21 March 1685. He was the son of Johann Ambrosius Bach, the director of the town musicians, and Maria Elisabeth Lämmerhirt.

I had the chance to visit Leipzig last December 2013. I took the chance to go  around the city and found some of its historic sights and monuments. One of it was the St. Thomas Church. Bach worked here as a Kapellmeister. It is also the place where his remains was buried. Beside this church, also stand the monument of Bach.

There should be a choir performing that day during my visit in St. Thomas Church.  Sad to say,  I was not able to witness it due to limited time. I  admired the music of  Bach. No wonder,  I have some CDs of  his music collection. What I just need next time is one of these  stanton headphones at Guitar Center . I can use this headphones when listening to Bach’s music.  Although during the time of Bach  there  were still no technology like computers and internet,  his talent was still made known around the world.
