Bach and Beethoven: True art remains eternal

Bach-Museum Leipzig | 04109 Leipzig

The Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, founded in Leipzig in 1798, provided the decisive basis for this. The exhibition illuminates Leipzig's musical life in the early 19th century and the mutually dependent canonisation of Bach and Beethoven as classics of music.
