The Greatest Musician Who Ever Lived
Johann Sebastian Bach is widely considered to be the greatest musician who ever lived. He is known to have taught his own students the principles of music by making them study and write chorales. These brief pieces of music are masterpieces not only of harmonic virtuosity but music pedagogy and musical instruction. They have been the cornerstone of music education and instruction for more than 150 years and have been extolled by practically all the great musicians who have followed in his wake.
“The Berlin composer, theorist, and writer Reichardt had a remarkable sense of Bach’s artistic greatness, authority, and influence, but he could hardly have anticipated Beethoven’s notion of Bach the ‘progenitor of harmony’, let alone the fact that Bach’s four-part chorales would, for more than two centuries and to the present day, reign supreme as the pre-eminent fundamental text for the teaching of harmony.”
