Johann Sebastian Bach
March 31, 1685 – July 28, 1750

Johann Sebastian Bach was a composer who transformed German classical music styles by weaving a blend of Italian and French forms and rhythms with German ones. In particular his pieces are marked by his expertise in counterpoint, as well as harmonic virtuosity.

His work as an organist is perhaps the best known. However, Bach was originally taught the violin and harpsichord by his father, himself a skilled musician. Bach also was graced with an exceptional singing voice, which led to a place at Michaelis monastery in Luneberg. His voice eventually changed, forcing Bach to switch to instrumentation, and eventually an organist.

The organ entranced him, and he skipped out on other responsibilities to practice. His skill grew, leading him from small German towns to become the concertmaster and organist at the ducal court in Weimar. This allowed him to composer more freely, as well as explore his deep love for teaching.

Bach switched to the court of Prince Leopold, composing some of his most important works during this period, such as the Brandenburg concerti. Later, Bach composed prolifically as the Musical Director in Leipzig at St. Thomas church until his death.

His body of work is seen as one the greatest contributions to classical music.
