Perhaps it was one of the things he did. I just think that it is too
everyday an interest and certainly it was not an interest which motivated
him. It was just something he could also do with his skill and talent. The
problem with many commercial artists today that money is their only
motivation. Bach would write music even if he was starving.
There is a saying in Russia about writers: if you are able not to write -
Bach was one of those people (I argue) who was not able not to write music.
It had nothing to do with impressing in order to secure a position. Real
talent leads a person. In fact, many genius people lived in poverty. I am
not saying this is good, but they kept doing what they did in spite of that.
