A Musical Quote by August Willhelm Bach

If you were thinking this was one of Bach's many sons think again! A.W. Bach, a German organist, teacher and composer was not a descendant of J.S. Bach. He received his earliest musical training from his father Gottfried Bach, organist at the Dreifaltigkeitskirche in Berlin.
