Carl Philipp Emanuel, one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s sons, published a short obituary of the life and work of his father known as Bach’s Nekrolog in 1754, four years after the composer’s death. Based on these texts and personal conversations with Bach’s sons and daughters, in 1802 Johann Nikolaus Forkel (1749-1818) published Johann Sebastian Bach: His Life, Art and Work (original title: Über Johann Sebastian Bachs Leben, Kunst und Kunstwerke) which is considered to be the first biography of Bach. Although the Nekrolog only presented a summary of Bach’s life and work and some general opinions, Forkel used it as a starting point to organize his biographical book in eleven different chapters dealing with Bach’s family background and a close look at his life as well as his wide range of skills and abilities – as a keyboard player, organist, composer and teacher – and just what kind of person he was. It includes a detailed list of all of Bach’s compositions with comments, a general assessment of his artistic evolution, and a final homage. Since Forkel’s book is based on first-hand information, it, in turn, became the go-to source for all further studies regarding the work of the Baroque music genius.
