About the Bach surname

The Bach family

The Bach family was of importance in the history of music for nearly two hundred years, with over 50 known musicians and several notable composers, the best-known of whom was Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750). A family genealogy was drawn up by Johann Sebastian Bach himself and completed by his son Carl Philipp Emanuel.

The Bach family never left Thuringia until the sons of Sebastian went into a more modern world. Through all the misery of the peasantry at the period of the Thirty Years' War this clan maintained its position and produced musicians who, however local their fame, were among the greatest in Europe. So numerous and so eminent were they that in Erfurt musicians were known as "Bachs", even when there were no longer any members of the family in the town. Sebastian Bach thus inherited the artistic tradition of a united family whose circumstances had deprived them of the distractions of the century of musical fermentation which in the rest of Europe had destroyed polyphonic music

Balázs Déri says :

Different Bach families may decend from different persons called Bakkhos in history of mankind.

Maybe the first was Dionysos,the "Young God", called by Aigyptians in their coptic language Awa-Sala,
likely ancestor of peoples called slav,and also Osiris,and by ancient hebrews Aban-Nawa-Ma-Wan-Na , the youngest of 12 brothers of the Byblical pantheion .

Bakkhos ,father of Salamon and Sergios in the days of caesar Justinian in 6th century according to Seleykid aera may be identical with Waya'elle Syrakuasa from allegedly Kraków,one of the chieftains

of goths later identified as "jews" . He was namely also called abbreviatedly "Bach" as an author of a book in the Byblical Babylónian  language titled Bawat Kha-Desha  translated as New House .

But kha-desha in our weynakh language could mean freely something like house of golden-time .

Jews and christians read Benyamin,Yo'el Sirkish,Beyt Khadash .
