Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) -
J.S. Bach was the greatest composer in the period musical
historians call the Baroque era, and in fact, a towering figure in
the entire history of music worldwide. He wrote vast amounts of
inspired music, and is still regarded by many as the greatest master
of counterpoint in any era of which there is an accurate record. Bach
was German, a Lutheran, and was prolific in ways other than musical -
he had about 20 kids. Some of his sons went on to become prominent
composers in their day.
There is a great deal of enthusiasm today for Bach's music. It's
performed widely, and just about all piano students are exposed to
his large library of solo keyboard music. Below are just a few links
to Bach resources on the web.
