Over the course of two centuries, one family grew to dominate the musical scene of Europe—so much so that in Erfurt, Germany, musicians were called “Bachs”! The Bach family produced scores (no pun intended) of professional musicians, composers, and musicologists, not the least of which was Johann Sebastian. How did one family end up with so much genius in it?
