Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 1750) was a German
composer and musician of the Baroque period. He
enriched established German styles through his skill in
counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and
the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from
abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's
compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the
Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions,
and over three hundred cantatas of which around two
hundred survive. His music is revered for its technical
command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.
