Shakespeare Reference in The Soloist

It seems that everything I've been reading this year - with the exceptions of the old Dungeons And Dragons novels I returned to for fun - has included some reference to Shakespeare. I just finished reading Mark Salzman's novel The Soloist, and it contains one Shakespeare reference. Salzman writes, "Casals often said that he felt that Bach was the Shakespeare and Rembrandt of music rolled into one, and that Bach's music expressed every nuance of the human experience" (p. 60).
