Bach Cities and Bach Places:

Gotha, Thuringia, Germany

 

1   Why Is Gotha One of the Bach Cities?

 

Gotha, what a city. Plus, Gotha is a real Bach city. Sure, it's none of the Bach cities, you have connected to Johann Sebastian Bach until now. However, the stress is on "until now", as he had been there. And that wasn't just for personal reasons. He had "acted" there, that is more precisely he has performed music. A receipt still exists as a proof. Learn more about the categories.

 

Beyond that, Hans once was living here and correct: he was performing here too. "Hans, the Spielmann". This particular Hans, who is so important for the Bach genealogy. Plus it is this Hans, who has caused so much headache and stomach ache for all the Bach genealogists in the world. But saying this, now almost everything is clear and you just have to read these lines. On my "Bach on Bach" website. And because Johann Sebastian Bach himself performed music in Gotha plus there is this really important genealogical connection, Gotha is listed in category B - and not in category C. Who helped with that information, which is not easy to find somewhere else: City Hall did. Thanks a lot.

4   Info About the Bach City of Gotha

 

"Gotha ennobles", they say in Gotha. And it's true, you get the feeling, they are right. You realize this already when you click the city's website, that is why I mention it so explicitly here in the beginning. Just a click and you are there. And which person is responsible for this? it is the person who once was major in the little neighborhood community Günthersleben-Wechmar and who engaged so very much for the preservation of the world cultural heritage with the theme of Bach: the preservation of the Bach Stamm-House and the Veit Bach Mill. You are right, both buildings don't have the UNESCO title, but for us, the Bach fan community, that doesn't matter. They have this significance. We are talking about Major Knut Kreuch. Kreuch ist Bach author as well, but not "just" Bach author. However, you are right, here it's about the city of Gotha.

 

You must have experienced Gotha. I was so impressed by the city of Gotha, that this town is the only Bach city, besides Erfurt, which my wife and I wanted to present with a little video and does not belong into the category A. Not Hamburg, not Berlin, not Potsdam. And because this town is important for the Bach Genealogy plus Johann Sebastian has acted here, that is why it, together with this great impression, climbed one category up, from C to B. I believe, these few words of my impression of Gotha tell more than one more mile of facts. Anyhow here are some: fifth largest city in Thuringia, 44,000 residents, a dreamlike architecture. Historic city hall, Friedenstein Palace, the Orangery. Now, what are you waiting for. Just click on the play button of the short Bach video, or at least on the play button of the even shorter Bach music video above.

 


 

5   A Short Video: the Bach City of Gotha

 

Film, pics, music and narration: Gotha presented in a likeable tiny video. Gotha is a category B Bach city, not a category C Bach city. Why is that so? Because I said so. However, there is a scientific reason too.
