The illustrations, mostly in colour, present Bach's life from his beginnings in Eisenach, Ohrdruf and Lüneburg, through his years as an organist in Arnstadt, Mühlhausen and Weimar and his period as Kapellmeister in Cöthen, to his tenure in Leipzig as music director and cantor at St. Thomas's. Expanded legends directly explain the meaning of each picture without the reader having to refer to another section in the book. Short introductions to the various periods of Bach's life, an essay on issues of the Bach iconography, as well as a detailed Appendix round off the volume"--Provided by publisher.
