Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach, the capital of the duchy of Saxe-Eisenach, in present-day Germany, on 21 March 1685 O.S. (31 March 1685 N.S.). He was the son of Johann Ambrosius Bach, the director of the town musicians, and Maria Elisabeth Lämmerhirt.

A fugue generally consists of a series of expositions and developments with no fixed number of either. At its simplest, a fugue might consist of one exposition followed by optional development. A more complex fugue might follow the exposition with a series of developments, or another exposition followed by one or more developments. Fugues that are tonally centered will expose the subject without venturing out of an initial tonic/dominant constellation. Before form, the fugue is metaphorical; its purpose is to reveal connections between seemingly unlike things. Its method is to develop an idea in never precisely the same way. Its character is to demonstrate relationships, unveiled both in terms of new ideas born of old, but also in counterpoint with the old. The fugal essence is experienced in discovery of the new to be of the stame "stuff" as the old.

By the time of Bach, the fugue as a complete composition, or as a named and self-contained section of a larger composition, had been well established in keyboard works by Dietrich Buxtehude, Johann Pachelbel, Georg Muffat, and many others in Germany, as well as in orchestral concerti by Antonio Vivaldi and others in Italy. The works of Bach stand at the very pinnacle of the history of the fugue. Bach’s fugues remain unsurpassed in their extraordinary variety and in their individual perfection, and no other composer produced so many resplendent examples of fugues large and small for every medium available to him at the time. Hardly less impressive, though not as numerous, are the large-scale choral fugues in the oratorios of Bach’s contemporary.
