Bach’s life through the eyes of his wife

Esther Meynell: La petite chronique d’Anna Magdalena Bach. ISBN 978-2-283-02556-7 (English title: The Little Chronicle Of Magdalena Bach) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A truly charming novel retracing Johann Sebastian Bach’s life through the eyes of his second wife  Anna Magdalena. The book was first published anonymously; the author Esther Meynell (1878-1955) was an English novelist. A fictional biography emphasing the adoration Anna Magdalena felt for her husband as well as her husband’s music and depicting life in a not-so-ordinary household in Leipzig in the 18th century.

One of my favourite Bach compositions are the Brandenburg Concerts:

Bach appeals to our sense of beauty.
