Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach (German pronunciation: [joˈhan] or [ˈjoːhan seˈbastjan ˈbax]) (31 March 1685 [O.S. 21 March] – 28 July 1750) was a Germancomposer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period andbrought it to its ultimate maturity.

Johann Sebastian Bach (German pronunciation: [joˈhan] or [ˈjoːhan seˈbastjan ˈbax]) (31 March 1685 [O.S. 21 March] – 28 July 1750) was a Germancomposer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments drew together the strands of the Baroque period andbrought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he introduced no new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntaltechnique,an unrivaled control of harmonic and motivic organisation in composition for diverse instrumentation, and the adaptation of rhythms andtextures from abroad, particularly Italy and France. Revered for their intellectual depth, technical command and artistic beauty, Bach's works include the Brandenburg Concertos,the Goldberg Variations,the Partitas, the Well-Tempered Clavier, the Mass in B Minor, the St. Matthew Passion,the St. John Passion, the Magnificat, The Musical Offering, TheArt of Fugue, the English Suites, the French Suites, the Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo, the Cello Suites, more than 200 surviving cantatas, and asimilar number of organ works,including the celebrated Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. While Bach's abilities as an organist were recognized and highly respected throughout Europe during his lifetime, he was not particularly well-known asa composer. His adherence to Baroque forms and contrapuntal style was considered "old-fashioned"by his contemporaries, especially late in his careerwhen the musical fashion tended towards Rococo and later Classical styles. Nevertheless, he remained a known figure among students who took manyof his compositions for practice, and it was through these means how he was survived for nearly 100 years after his death. A revival of interest andperformances of his music began early in the 19th century, after much being championed by many contemporary composers including (But not limitedto) other widely known and respected figures such as Beethoven. He is now widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influentialcomposers of all time. « hide
