Bach - an intimate portrait


This postcard arrived from Hedgehog in Berlin, where he has been attending Barenboim's Festtage 2009. Hedgehog's message says:
Centuries of Bach research have revealed the minutiae of his domestic life. That he was a prolific father of numerous children is a well-known fact. This intimate portrait reveals his lesser-known penchant for 'Das washing-up'. Remarkable!
