Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (Composer)

Born: 21st June 1732, Leipzig, Germany

Died: 26th January 1795, Buckeburg, Germany

Nationality: German

Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach was a harpsichordist and composer, the fifth son of Johann Sebastian Bach, sometimes referred to as the "Bückeburg Bach".

Born in Leipzig in the Electorate of Saxony, he was taught music by his father, and also tutored by his distant cousin Johann Elias Bach. He studied at the St. Thomas School, and some believe he studied law at the university there, but there is no record of this. In 1750, William, Count of Schaumburg-Lippe appointed Johann Christoph harpsichordist at Bückeburg, and in 1759, he became concertmaster.
