JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

GERMAN COMPOSER AND A MASTER OF BAROQUE MUSIC, BORN IN 1685 IN EISENACH, GERMANY

« MUSIC IS AN AGREEABLE HARMONY FOR THE HONOR OF GOD AND THE PERMISSIBLE DELIGHTS OF THE SOUL. »

ON LAND, AT SEA, AT HOME, ABROAD, I SMOKE MY PIPE AND WORSHIP GOD.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

(…) SHE THINKS OF JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH’S TIME WHEN MUSIC LOOKED LIKE A ROSE BLOOMING ON THE IMMENSE SNOWY PLAIN OF SILENCE.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

SINCE THE BACCALAUREATE IS NOT PRECISELY A BET OF PLEASURE, THE CANDIDATES’ CONFUSION INEVITABLY ARISES FROM CRAMMING, WHICH CONSISTS NOT IN RATIONALLY FEEDING THEIR BRAINS, BUT IN FEEDING THEM WITH A MASS OF KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO DISGUST IN HASTE AT THE EXPENSE OF A MATURE REFLECTION.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I HAVE ALWAYS HAD AN END IN MIND, NAMELY… TO LEAD A CHURCH MUSIC WELL ADJUSTED TO THE HONOR OF GOD.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

REMEMBER WHAT BACH SAYS: WHAT COMES FROM LOVE AND TORMENT, GOD CANNOT ERASE IT, WE ARE CONDEMNED TO ENDURE IT AND, SOMETIMES, TO DIE FROM IT.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

CRAMMING

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

THE PURPOSE OF MUSIC SHOULD BE ONLY THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE RELAXATION OF SOULS. IF WE DO NOT TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT, IT IS NO LONGER ABOUT MUSIC BUT ABOUT DIABOLICAL NASILLATIONS AND BELLOWS.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

THE BACHELOR HAD IN THIS SUSPENSION THESE DOUBTS, THESE TEMPTATIONS, THESE TRIUMPHS AND DEFEATS, THESE TEARS OF RAGE AND THESE JOYS OF YOUTH THAT THE MATURE AGE IGNORES OR DESPISES, AND OF WHICH HE HIMSELF LATER KEPT ONLY A MEMORY TAINTED WITH OBLIVION.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

MUSIC: A PLEASANT HARMONY CELEBRATING GOD AND THE PERMITTED PLEASURES OF THE SOUL.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I HAD TO SOLVE THE OLD PROBLEM BEFORE I LEFT: IF YOU WERE ISOLATED FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, WHAT BOOKS WOULD YOU TAKE WITH YOU? IN TERMS OF GENRES, I HAD BROUGHT A MOLIèRE AND A COMPLETE RABELAIS, A CERVANTES, A NIETZSCHE AND THE AESCHYLUS THEATRE IN BILINGUAL. SPINOZA, EXCERPTS FROM MONTAIGNE, AND AS MUSICAL SCORES, THE TWO BACH PASSIONS AND THE BEETHOVEN QUARTETS.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I’VE DONE A LOT OF WORK. ANYONE WHO WORKS LIKE ME CAN DO WHAT I DID.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

WHEN WE LISTEN TO BACH OR A GREGORIAN MELODY, ALL THE FACULTIES OF THE SOUL REMAIN SILENT AND STRETCH OUT TO GRASP THIS PERFECTLY BEAUTIFUL THING, EACH IN ITS OWN WAY. INTELLIGENCE, AMONG OTHER THINGS; IT FINDS NOTHING TO AFFIRM AND DENY, BUT IT FEEDS ON IT. SHOULDN’T FAITH BE AN ADHERENCE OF THIS KIND? THE MYSTERIES OF FAITH ARE DEGRADED BY MAKING THEM AN OBJECT OF AFFIRMATION OR NEGATION, WHEREAS THEY MUST BE AN OBJECT OF CONTEMPLATION.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

IT IS THE SPECIAL PROVINCE OF MUSIC TO MOVE THE HEART.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

NO MATTER HOW INGENIOUS YOU MAY BE, LOVE IS NOT VARIED; IT ALWAYS PRESENTS ITSELF IN THE SAME WAY: YOU CAN EASILY FOLLOW EACH PERIOD AND EACH SUCCESSIVE MANIFESTATION, FROM THE BEGINNING ALWAYS THE SAME TO THE END ALWAYS THE SAME. THE SENSUAL ONES TRY TO WORK ON IT, TO REFINE IT, TO COMPLICATE IT, TO PERFECT IT, THEY FIND NOTHING NEW; AND, IN PRACTICE, A SCHOOLBOY PREPARING HIS BACCALAUREATE KNOWS AS MUCH AS AN OLD DROOLING SENATOR OR AS A GALLANT ACADEMICIAN WHITEWASHED IN THE ADVENTURES.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

AH! WHAT A SWEET COFFEE TASTE! MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN A THOUSAND KISSES, SOFTER THAN MUSCAT!

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I’VE BEEN WORKING HARD. EVERYONE WHO WORKS AS HARD AS I DO HAS THE SAME RESULTS.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I DON’T CARE IF REMBRANDT IS FORBIDDEN TO THE BLIND, DOSTOYEVSKY TO THE ILLITERATE AND BACH TO THE DEAF…

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

GOD’S GIFT TO HIS BEREAVED CREATURES IS A JOY WORTHY OF THEIR DESTINY.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

IT IS EASY TO PLAY ANY MUSICAL INSTRUMENT: JUST PRESS THE RIGHT KEY AT THE RIGHT TIME AND THE INSTRUMENT WILL PLAY ON ITS OWN.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

IN HER PSYCHOANALYSIS OF FIRE, BACHELARD IMAGINES THAT THE IDEA OF RUBBING TWO STICKS TO LIGHT THE OAKUM WAS INSPIRED BY THE FRICTIONS OF LOVE. BY FUCKING, THE MAN WOULD HAVE HAD THE INTUITION OF FIRE. GOOD TO KNOW. TO QUENCH THE LIBIDO, THINK ABOUT LOOKING AT THE EMBERS.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

OLD CONCEPT: LOVE IS BLIND. MARRIAGE IS A REVELATION. A NEW CONCEPT: LOVE IS NOT BLIND

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

WITHOUT MY MORNING COFFEE, I’M LIKE A PIECE OF DRIED ROASTED GOAT CHEESE.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

MODUS VIVALDI: VIVALDI KNOWS HOW TO DRESS. REPLICA OF JOSETTE BACH TO HER HUSBAND JEAN

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

WHERE THERE IS DEVOTIONAL MUSIC, GOD IS ALWAYS AT HAND WITH HIS GRACEFUL PRESENCE.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I PLAY THE NOTES AS THEY ARE WRITTEN, BUT IT IS GOD WHO MAKES THE MUSIC.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

WE CAN DESTROY ANIMALS MORE EASILY THAN THEY CAN DESTROY US: THIS IS THE ONLY SOLID BASIS FOR OUR CLAIM TO SUPERIORITY. WE VALUE ART, SCIENCE AND LITERATURE BECAUSE THEY ARE THINGS IN WHICH WE EXCEL. BUT WHALES COULD VALUE BLOWING AND DONKEYS COULD CONSIDER THAT A GOOD BRAYING IS MORE EXQUISITE THAN BACH’S MUSIC. WE CANNOT PROVE THEM WRONG, EXCEPT THROUGH THE EXERCISE OF OUR ARBITRARY POWER. ALL ETHICAL SYSTEMS, IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS, DEPEND ON WEAPONS OF WAR.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

THE ONLY PURPOSE OF MUSIC SHOULD BE THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE RECREATION OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

THE PURPOSE AND END OF ALL MUSIC SHOULD BE ONLY THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE REFRESHMENT OF THE SOUL.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

EVERYTHING WAS GOING WRONG. PEOPLE WERE CLINGING BLINDLY TO THE FIRST LIFEBUOY THAT CAME ALONG: COMMUNISM, DIETETICS, ZEN, SURFING, CLASSICAL DANCE, HYPNOTISM, GROUP DYNAMICS, ORGIES, CYCLING, GRASS, CATHOLICISM, DUMBBELLS, TRAVEL, INNER WITHDRAWAL, VEGETARIAN CUISINE, INDIA, PAINTING, WRITING, SCULPTURE, MUSIC, THE PROFESSION OF CONDUCTOR, BACKPACKING, YOGA, COPULATION, PLAY, ALCOHOL, ZONER, FROZEN YOGURT, BEETHOVEN, BACH, BUDDHA, CHRIST, H, CARROT JUICE, SUICIDE, TAILOR

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

MUSIC IS A PLEASANT HARMONY FOR THE HONOR OF GOD AND THE AUTHORIZED DELIGHTS OF THE SOUL.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

UNCEASING WORK, ANALYSIS, REFLECTION, A LOT OF WRITING, ENDLESS SELF

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

LIVING IS A GOLDEN DUST AT YOUR FINGERTIPS, A BLUE SONG ON A NANNY’S LIPS, BACH’S TEMPERATE KEYBOARD BOOK THAT OPENS UPSIDE DOWN AND ALL THE NOTES THAT ROLL LIKE BALLS IN THE ROOM.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

HARMONY IS NEXT TO PIETY.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

MUSIC: A PLEASANT HARMONY CELEBRATING GOD AND THE PERMITTED PLEASURES OF THE SOUL.”

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

IF ONLY GOD HAD MADE OUR WORLD AS PERFECT AS BACH MADE HIS DIVINE WORLD!

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

IF I DECIDE TO BE AN IDIOT, THEN I WILL BE AN IDIOT MYSELF.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

THE PURPOSE OF MUSIC SHOULD BE ONLY THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE RELAXATION OF SOULS. IF WE DO NOT TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT, IT IS NO LONGER MUSIC BUT DIABOLICAL NASILLATIONS AND BELLOWS.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

WE ARE THE ONES WHO COME NEXT. WE NOW KNOW THAT A MAN CAN READ GOETHE OR RILKE, PLAY PASSAGES BY BACH OR SCHUBERT, AND THE NEXT MORNING GO TO HIS DAILY WORK IN AUSCHWITZ.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

JUST PRESS THE RIGHT KEYS AND PEDALS AT THE RIGHT TIME AND THE MUSIC WILL PLAY ON ITS OWN.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

DOWNSTREAM FROM RHEINGAU, WHERE THE BANKS OF THE RIVER LOSE THEIR SMILING MINE, WHERE MOUNTAINS AND ROCKS WITH THEIR FANTASTIC RUINS OF OLD VILLAGES TAKE ON A HAUGHTY, WILDER, MORE SERIOUS AND MORE MAJESTIC AIR, WE DISCOVER, SIMILAR TO A GLOOMY LEGEND OF THE OLD DAYS, THE OLD AND DARK CITY OF BACHARACH.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

NOTHING IS MORE ODIOUS NOWADAYS, MORE HUMANLY ODIOUS, MORE HUMILIATING THAN TO WATCH A MODERN FRENCHMAN CALLED LITERATE, TO SNEER AT A TEXT, A WORK… ANY BEAST NEXT DOOR HAS A NOBLE, PATHETIC AND DEEPLY MOVING ALLURE. BUT LOOK AT THIS BRAVADO, SO INDECENT OF SUFFICIENCY, OBSCENE OF BRAGGING MUFLERY, SO OVERSHADOWED BY STUBBORNNESS, AS IT IS OVERWHELMING…. WHAT ELSE CAN I EXPLAIN TO HIM? ANSWER HIM?… .. HE KNOWS EVERYTHING!… .. HE’S INCURABLE! IF HE GOT HIS BACCALAUREATE THEN HE’S NOT EVEN APPROACHABLE ANYMORE. THE PEACOCK IS NO LONGER HIS COUSIN. ANYTHING THAT MAY EVEN VAGUELY RESEMBLE SOME POETIC INTENTION BECOMES A PERSONAL INSULT TO HIM.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I HAD TO BE INDUSTRIOUS. ANYONE WHO IS ALSO INDUSTRIOUS WILL SUCCEED JUST AS WELL.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH

I WILL NOT INSIST ON THE HISTORICAL IMPOSSIBILITY OF WAGNER BEING GERMANY’S FIRST COMPOSER. SO, BACH? IS HE A MAN WHO HAD MANY CHILDREN? BEETHOVEN? WAS ANOTHER WHO WAS SO BAD
