What defines a genius?

Genius is described as one who has exceptional intellectual or creative power, a statement that applies to many a great composer. However, even amongst geniuses, Bach stands apart from his contemporaries. No one before or after him reached his level of excellence relative to their own field. His contributions to the art of music far outweigh those of his predecessors and successors, resulting in him almost single-handedly developing Western music to its peak. In this program, we delve into the mind of a genius through his music, demonstrating beyond his creative genius that shines so brightly today and changed western civilisation forever.
