Bach | Meet the Composer Book – Easy Piano (Digital)

Johann Sebastian Bach, in his day, was considered an old fashioned composer. He was good enough to deserve his own entry in a dictionary of music and musicians, but his entry was shorter than baroque composer and pianist Johann Kuhnau. Things had changed. Kuhnau is largely forgotten, except to pianists, and Johann Sebastian Bach has risen from almost forgotten to one of the greatest composers of all time.

This Meet the Composer edition features best of Bach, including his famous Toccata in D Minor for pipe organ and Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring which has become a popular music choice for brides.
