MusicAtlas: Weimar

Weimar is always linked with Goethe and Schiller, and often with Liszt. But it is rarely paraded as an important Bach city. He lived here in 1703 and from 1708 until 1717; 35 cantatas and the major part of his organ compositions were written in Weimar!

Duchess Anna Amalia of Saxe-Weimar played harpsichord and guitar and composed “Singspiele” on texts by Goethe; she established the splendid library that bears her name in the “Grüner Schloß”.
