Music: An Art and a Language - Reading Together - Polyphonic Music; Sebastian Bach, the Fugue
"The form in which polyphonic skill reaches its highest possibilities is the Fugue."

"Schumann says that 'Music owes to Bach what a religion owes to its founder'; and it is true that a knowledge of Bach is the beginning of musical wisdom."

"Furthermore, in Bach, we feel the force of a great character even more than the artistic skill with which the personality is revealed. In this respect Bach in music is quite on a par with Shakespeare in literature and Michael Angelo in plastic art."
