JS Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach [j'oohan seb'astian bahh] (31. märts (vana kalendri järgi 21. märts) 1685 Eisenach – 28. juuli 1750 Leipzig) oli saksa helilooja ja organist, Bachide suguvõsa kõige väljapaistvam liige. Oma eluajal ja ka veel 18. sajandi lõpul oli Bach tuntud vaid võrdlemisi kitsas ringkonnas, heliloojana hakati teda laialt tunnustama alles 19. sajandi esimesel poolel. Praegu peetakse teda üheks põhiliseks heliloojaks barokiajastul ning üheks suurimaks terves muusikaajaloos. Tema loomingut on peetud saksa klassikalise muusika kõrgaja alguseks.
