JS Bach in State Pen

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Richard Walker, Wednesday, 10 June 2015, 02:59

Listening to the radio yesterday, I was amazed to hear J.S. Bach once did time.

Well not exactly.

As I understand it, he got a new job (in 1717) but his current employer (Duke of Weimar and ruler of that state) didn't want to let him go. So Bach was put in jail. After a month he was released.

But his detention is an example of Power speaking unto Art.
