Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach

21 Mar 1685 — 28 Jul 1750 Baroque

Born in 1685 in Eisenach, Germany, died in 1750 in Leipzig, Germany. Johann Sebastian Bach was born on the 21st March 1685 in Eisenach to a family of musicians. After the early death of both parents Bach lived with his older brother Johann Christoph at his home in Ohrdruf. In 1700 Bach received a scholarship in the Michaelis convent school in Luneburg

Indisputable authority on polyphony and counterpoint Johann Sebastian Bach is among those revered composers who are known as The Three Bs together with Beethoven and Brahms and all three in their own right are deeply respected by their German compatriots. Having left a prolific oeuvre Bach managed to contribute into virtually every musical genre existing at the time he composed. The only one left out by him on purpose or otherwise is the genre of opera. (Interestingly, this is in full measure true with Brahms and Beethoven in his turn composed only one). The man of genius not surpassed till today Bach owing to the fact that his music possessed the degree of subtlety and fineness unmatched had to practically create a new genre – that of invention, simplified fugue, to make performing of his organ pieces step by step an easier job for his disciples. In fact, his works are so tremendously various that every musician despite his level of mastery can find something suitable in the legacy of the great composer.
