Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was a German composer and organist. He was born into a musically gifted family and received musical instruction from a young age. He was married twice, once in 1707, to Maria Barbara Bach, and after her death to Anna Magdalena Wilcken, with whom he had thirteen children, only three of whom lived to adulthood. During his tenure as court musician to the Duke Wilhelm Erst of Weimar, he wrote his best known works. In 1736, he became the Royal Court Composer to the Elector of Saxony, Friedrich August II. He went blind towards the end of his life and died in 1750 in Leipzig.
Bach wrote the in 1708 Suite for Lute and Harpischord during the period he was in Wiemar. Despite the fact that it was one of the first such work, it balances the two instruments well.
This recording is performed by Michel Dintrich, guitar, and the Orchestre Symphonique de Radio-Tele-Luxembourg.
