How to create an interactive Doodle with Bach
Johann Sebastian Bach was born on March 21, 1685(according to the old Julian calendar) in the Thuringian city of Eisenach, Germany. In 1703, after graduating from high school in Lüneburg, Johann Bach got a job as a court musician in the chapel of the Weimar Duke Johann Ernst. Bach played the violin for six months and gained his first popularity as a performer. But soon he got bored and he threw it in order to become a court organist in the church of St. Boniface in the city of Arnstadt. From here began the professional career of the composer.
Portrait of the composer
The creative heritage of Bach is huge. He created works in all genres known at that time, except for the opera. Contemporaries appreciated him, but the scale of the composer’s work was realized only half a century after his death.
