Ο Γιόχαν Σεμπάστιαν Μπαχ (Johann Sebastian Bach, Άϊζεναχ, 21/31 Μαρτίου 1685 - Λειψία, 28 Ιουλίου 1750) ήταν Γερμανός συνθέτης, διευθυντής ορχήστρας, εκπαιδευτικός και εκτελεστής (οργανίστας, κλειδοκυμβαλίστας, βιολιστής και βιολονίστας) της περιόδου Μπαρόκ. Υπήρξε αναμφισβήτητα ο μεγαλύτερος συνθέτης αυτής της περιόδου, καθώς και ένας από τους σπουδαιότερους στην ιστορία της έντεχνης Δυτικής μουσικής. Τα περισσότερα από 1000 έργα του που έχουν διασωθεί ως τις μέρες μας, ενσωματώνουν όλα τα χαρακτηριστικά του στυλ Μπαρόκ, το οποίο και απογειώνουν στην τελειότητα.
