Baroque music

Йохан Себастиан Бах (на немски: Johann Sebastian Bach) е немски композитор и клавирен майстор, признат за един от най-великите гении в световната музикална история. Представител е на немската музикална школа и музикалното изкуство в периода и стила барок. До днес са оцелели и каталогизирани над хиляда негови произведения, а друга, навярно по-малка част е изгубена. Приживе е почитан най-вече като виртуозен изпълнител на орган и клавесин.
