The first major biographies of Johann Sebastian Bach, including those by Johann Nikolaus Forkel and Philipp Spitta, were published in the 19th century. Many more were published in the 20th century by, among others, Albert Schweitzer, Charles Sanford Terry, Christoph Wolff and Klaus Eidam. Little was published about Bach's life in the 18th century, his "Nekrolog" (obituary) being the most extended biographical note about the composer's life.

Johann Sebastian Bach – Malbuch/Coloring Book. The Bach Family: Seven Generations of Creative Genius. Authors: Karl Geiringer, Irene Geiringer.

Published January 1st 1970 by Da Capo Press (first published 1920) . 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. Teldec's mammoth Bach 2000 box set represents a kind of culmination of that original attempt to come to terms with Johann Sebastian Bach's unparalleled legacy. This set brings together performances recorded over the last several decades-a small percentage of the recordings are previously unreleased-of all the extant works determined by modern scholarship to be authentic.

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he did not introduce new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France.

Comments:

Yozshujind
This book is the first biography of J S Bach and is well worth the time of anyone interested in this great composer. It is most interesting to see what Bach's first biographer said about him.

Later scholars have shown that some of what Forkel has written is not completely accurate, but it is still well worth your time.

And you can't beat the price.

It would be greatly enhanced with a table of contents.
Zahisan
The opening of this book lists a number of faults with this biography. One can buy the much more recent work Bach: Music in the Castle of Heaven by John Eliot Gardiner (Oct 29, 2013). This work has a very good rating and if one wants to purchase a book on the great composer, this would be one of my considerations.
Doomblade
I love Bach however this book was a challenge to get through.
FLIDER
Judging it for what it is rather than what it is not. A very good concise overview to the Master. Plus it was free. There are more complete and varied bios, but this is an excellent start, particularly for the non musician.
Alsalar
This was the first biography of JSB, written by one of his pupils. Although not always strictly accurate it is essential reading in any
study of the great man.
Contancia
I like it because it is not only a teaching book for piano major but also a reading for relax time. It's a good way for acknowledging the musician's op. It's also introduce the reader to know how to play the work with Johann Sebastian Bach. I love it so much.
Ueledavi
The earliest account of Bach's life. Short, but a necessary read
My mom liked this as a gift!
