    Johann Sebastian Bach (born March 21 / March 31, 1685 in Eisenach, Saxony-Eisenach; † July 28, 1750 in Leipzig, Saxony) was a German composer, cantor, court concertmaster, violinist and baroque organ and harpsichord virtuoso Thuringia. In his main creative period he was Thomaskantor in Leipzig. He is the most prominent representative of the Bach family of musicians and is now considered one of the most famous and important musicians of all. Professional musicians in particular often regard him as the greatest composer in music history. His works influenced subsequent generations of composers and inspired music-making artists to do countless arrangements.During his lifetime, Bach was highly valued as a virtuoso, organist and organ inspector, but his compositions were only known to a relatively small group. After Bach's death, his works fell into oblivion for decades and were rarely performed in public. After the composers of the Viennese Classicism had dealt with parts of Bach's work, the Bach renaissance began with the re-performance of the St. Matthew Passion under the direction of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in 1829. Since the middle of the 19th century, his works have been part of the repertoire of classical music around the world.His most famous works include The Well-Tempered Clavier, the St. Matthew Passion, The Art of Fugue, his Christmas Oratorio, the Brandenburg Concerts and many cantatas.Source: Wikipedia
