Leipzig - the city of music

1723-1750

No other German city has such a grand musical tradition as Leipzig. Many composers have a close connection with the city: Wagner was born here, pianist Clara Wieck achieved enormous success here. This is not only where Mendelssohn and Schumann composed many of their most important works, but also where they intensively studied the works of J.S. Bach. Bach, presumably the city's most famous resident, lived and worked in the city of Leipzig for 27 years. Here he composed works such as the "Mass in B Minor" and the "Art of Fugue"; this is also where the St. Thomas' Church is located, his main creative domain and his grave. His monument looks over to the Bach Museum, where his musical heritage is maintained and intensive research of his works is performed.
