As part of the monthly Western Music Appreciation Series hosted by Goethe Zentrum, the Hyderabad Western Music Forum is presenting a 2-day lecture on Johann Sebastian Bach, from 29th to 30th October. The lecture is prepared and conducted by Timothy Marthand, and will begin at 6pm on both the days.

Johann Sebastian Bach (31 March 1685 – 28 July 1750) was a German composer and organist whose works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he introduced no new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style, while adapting rhythms, forms and textures from abroad, particularly Italy and France.

Revered for their intellectual depth, technical command and artistic beauty, Bach's works include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Sonatas and Partitas for the solo violin, the Cello Suites, more than 200 surviving Cantatas; and several organ works, including the celebrated Toccata and Fugue in D minor, and Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor.

Marthand is a Hyderabadi musician who has performed the world over and is determined to bring Western Classical music back to his home soil. He aims also to increase the awareness and appreciation for this music. Notably, Marthand is the 1st Indian to be accepted by the prestigious International Piano Foundation (IPF) in Italy. He has, thus, worked with some world artistes, including Martha Argerich, Murray Perahia, and Leon Fleisher.
