The beauty of the original Bach was hidden from mankind for 300 years. At least in WTC. What has humanity given us in Bach for all these 300 years since 1722? It clearly demonstrated the intellectual, professional and artistic helplessness in the face of the tasks set by the great man.
That is the message of Bach in the Well-Tempered Clavier (and not only) is approximately the following content - "I will work for God to the limit of my abilities and deserve to see Him. People are not particularly interesting to me, they will not come to God soon, but when they come they will see and understand Me."
How right he is! That's the only way to work. Whoever works for people, will not achieve anything but fuss and will not receive anything but vanity. People are still sure that vanity and coins express "recognition". I also thought so until the age of 35. Thank God, for the last 30 years I have taken the path of Bach. And he opened up to me. And I give his music to you, my dearest friends.
