Five Bach places respectively Bach cities are special. Two of them for the reason, they are really important for the Bach Genealogy and for the Bache as a family of musicians. However they are not that important, that they are real Bach cities and Bach experts might state the more Bach cities we list, the more unimportant and confusing they are in the life of Johann Sebastian Bach. Which is true. On the other hand, this website is designed to clear things and that means, if there is a place on the internet, which tells Ammern is a Bach location, and Gotha is not and Weissenfels is, this - my - Johann Sebastian Bach source wants to guide you to a correct impression. So it's not about to judge, whether one of these 33 at all and five in the category B are Bach cities and Bach places, but you decide, what's worth to need to know - or not.
Category B are five locations. Erfurt actually is a combination of both unbelievable important as a Bach city, when it comes to check on the genealogy of that family. Plus Johann Sebastian Bach has checked on an organ here. On the third hand ( ... me = Punchinello) he probably had been there to meet relatives or to join at least one family gathering in 50 years. Gotha is a category B Bach city for the same reason, but a little less in numbers: Johann Sebastian Bach performed music in Gotha and "Hans, the Spielmann" is so important in the Bach Genealogy, that I upgraded Gotha from category C. Next is Graefenroda: why this place is category B will remain my personal secret for the oncoming years. Finally, there is Weissenfels, actually sort of a working place for Johann Sebastian back then. Plus Luebeck, which produced such a likeable story inside Bach's life that it's just not a category C Bach city.
