Johann Sebastian Bach 1685-1750

Born in Eisenach, J.S. Bach was one of the greatest musical geniuses the world has ever known. Ludwig van Beethoven remarked that, rather than Bach (brook), he ought to have been called Meer (sea). J.S. Bach's cantatas, passions, concertos and works for organ and piano are some of mankind's most precious cultural heritage. The last major post Bach held before his death was at St. Thomas' Church in Leipzig.
