Die Stimmung der Welt

Genre: Fiction

Dritte, um "Fiktion und Fakten" erweiterte Auflage. Jeder hat von Johann Sebastian Bachs Wohltemperiertem Klavier gehört - aber über seine Reise nach Fis-Dur weiß kaum jemand etwas. Im März des Jahres 1700, kurz vor seinem fünfzehnten Geburtstag, macht Johann Sebastian Bach sich auf den Weg. Sein Ziel: die vollkommene Musik zu schaffen, eine Musik, die Himmel und Erde in Harmonie vereint. Seine Suche führt ihn schließlich nach Lübeck, wo er Andreas Werckmeister und die wohltemperierte Stimmung kennenlernt. In dieser Stimmung - das ist neu! - kann man alles spielen, alle Tonarten, in Dur und in Moll. Aber die Vollkommenheit hat ihren Preis: Alle Töne werden ein bißchen 'temperiert', das heißt verfälscht, die Musik hat von nun an einen Hauch von Künstlichkeit. Und nicht nur die Töne, auch die Natur und die Menschen werden temperiert. Gärten werden mit geometrischer Exaktheit angelegt, Flüsse kanalisiert, Städte neu entworfen. Die Nacht wird durch die Straßenbeleuchtung zum Tag, die Taschenuhr erlaubt es, die Zeit mitzunehmen, die Stimmgabel den Chorton. Der Weg in eine künstliche Welt hat begonnen. Als Bach das Wohltemperierte Klavier vollendet hat, befällt ihn der abgrundtiefe Zweifel: Ist dieses Werk nicht 'nur von dieser Welt', perfekt, künstlich, profan? 'Bachs Leben besteht für uns vor allem aus biographischen Lücken. Man weiß einiges, aber man weiß vieles nicht. Diese Lücken sind die Chance für den Romancier. Die Fakten waren meine Fessel, aber sie waren auch meine Inspirationsquelle. Frei im Sinne von willkürlich erfunden habe ich nichts.' Jens Johler
