We remember a fine compliment paid to Mr. Bach by the celebrated organist, John Schneider, whom we afterwards met in Dresden. When on the way from Mr. Schneider’s house to the church where he was about to play, he said, “I will play for you some of Bach’s fugues.” “Thank you, sir,” we replied; “we are always delighted to hear these charming organ pieces, and had the pleasure a few days since of listening to several of them as performed by W[ilhel]m. Bach, of Berlin.” “So!" said Schneider; “if you have heard Wilhelm Bach play Bach’s fugues, I will play something else, for I do not like to play the same music which you have heard by so excellent a performer as he is.”
