Unfollowing Bach

Leipzig Hauptbahnhof at Christmas

I did not imagine my trip to Leipzig as it actually happened. I was curious to see the hometown of Bach, although I am not a big fan. I imagined Leipzig as a city dominated by the memory and footprints of Bach.

But Bach was important only in my imagination, I hardly found his statue in front of St. Thomas Church where he was cantor, and that after I discovered many other places and enchanting views of Leipzig. Walking in old town, I enjoyed stepping into old passages (Mädler, Speck Hof and more) which still keep the footprints of Goethe, Leibnitz, Mendelssohn, Schiller and many more...

Coming by train, you will be impressed by the largest station in Europe and, especially around Christmas, the decorations make it look like a fairy land. If I'd had enough time, I would have enjoyed to see a concert in Gewandhaus or Opera. But since I was on a rush, I just tried the Finnish glogg in Augustusplatz where I could see both buildings and took an elevator to the Panorama Tower to see what my eyes missed from the street level.

It was my first trip to Leipzig, don't know if it was the last, but one thing I know for sure: I am unfollowing Bach, he is dead anyway and he doesn't know or care if I exist, moreover...he never did...You know that Bach was (almost) the most prolific composer ? He was beaten only by Telemann, who refused the same job as cantor that Bach accepted...But also in his personal life, Bach was prolific, he had 20 children! and nowadays those who have him as an idol are only prolific in lies...
