Bach: the other story
Author Bert Natter is a great lover of Bach. He wrote a thick novel about his most famous pupil, Goldberg (2015, shortlisted for the ECI Literature Prize) and made the popular podcast Bach to the bone. In a series of three lectures, he tries to find out what kind of man the greatest composer of all time was, how his reputation grew and what happened to his mortal remains.
Bach to the bone
Every year, tens of thousands of believers and music lovers visit Leipzig. There they shuffle past Bach's grave in the Thomaskirche in silent admiration. Bert Natter discovered that it is highly questionable whether Bach's mortal remains actually rest there. The story of Bach's bones is as amusing as it is incredible.
