    Although we have heard the music of J. S. Bach in countless performances and recordings, the composer himself still comes across only as an enigmatic figure in a single familiar portrait. As we mark the 250th anniversary of Bach's death, author Christoph Wolff presents a new picture that brings to life this towering figure of the Baroque era. This engaging new biography portrays Bach as the living, breathing, and sometimes imperfect human being that he was, while bringing to bear all the advances of the last half-century of Bach scholarship.

    "Hasta la vista, Bayern finalista!" Spontane, unvergessliche Sprüche wie dieser sind das Markenzeichen des Fußballreporters Wolff-Christoph Fuss. Im Jahr der Fußball-WM 2014 erzählt er aus der verrückten Realität seines Traumberufs und einer häufig überdrehten Branche. Er erinnert sich an peinliche Patzer bei seinen ersten Spielkommentaren, an emotionale Augenblicke wie beim "Spiel für die Ewigkeit" zwischen Inter Mailand und Schalke 04 oder an Vorgänge hinter den Kulissen.
