Bach, Johann Christoph Friedrich
Bach, Johann Christoph Friedrich (the “Bückeburg” Bach), ninth son of Johann Sebastian; b. Leipzig, June 21, 1732; d. Bückeburg, Jan. 26, 1795. He studied music with his father, then attended the Univ. of Leipzig, where he took courses in jurisprudence. Adopting music as his principal vocation, he became a chamber musician in Bückeburg, a post he held until his death. Although less known as a composer than his brothers, he was a fine musician. A selected edition of his works was ed. by G. Schünemann and sponsored by the Fürstliches Institut für Musikwis-senschaftliche Forschung (1920–22). Schünemann also ed. several oratorios in Denkmaler Deutscher Tonkunst (vol. 56, 1917). G. Walter ed. the cantata Die Amerikanerin (Berlin, 1919), and L. Duttenhofer, a set of six quartets (Paris, 1922); several other chamber works may be found in K. Geiringer, Music of the Bach Family: An Anthology (Cambridge, Mass., 1955); three syms. have been ed. in facsimile by H. Wohlfarth (Bückeburg, 1966).
H. Wohlfarth, J.C.F. B. (Bern, 1971; includes a catalogue of works); U. Leisinger, éd., J.C. F. B. (1732–1795): Ein Komponist zwischen Barock und Klassik (Buckeberg, 1995).

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
