The Definitive Biography of P.D.Q. Bach

The Definitive Biography of P.D.Q. Bach

Peter Schickele


What little-known son of a well-known genius has been called:

"A musical blight"

"A one-man plague"

"History's such a lot justifiably ignored composer"

"The worst musician ever to trod organ pedals" "A pimple at the face of music"

In this long-awaited hoax, probably the main unimportant piece of scholarship in over thousand years, Professor Peter Schickele has eventually succeeded in ripping the veil of obscurity from the main strange -- to place it kindly -- composer within the historical past of track: P.D.Q. Bach, the final and absolutely the least of the good Johann Sebastian Bach's many young children.
