J. S. BACH - Bertalan Hock

Johann Sebastian Bach was born on March 21, 1685 in
Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany. A prolific German composer and organist,
his sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra and solo instruments
drew together the strands of the baroque genre and brought it to its
ultimate maturity. Although he introduced no new forms, he enriched the
prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, a control
of harmonic and motivic organisation from the smallest to the largest
scales, and the adaptation of rhythms and textures from abroad,
particularly Italy and France. Many people consider him to be the
greatest Baroque composer, and one of the greatest composers of all
time.



Revered for their intellectual depth, technical command and artistic
beauty, J.S. Bach's works include the Brandenburg concertos, the
keyboard suites and partitas, the Mass in B Minor, the St. Matthew
Passion, The Musical Offering, The Art of Fugue and a large number of
cantatas, of which about 220 survive. He died on July 28, 1750.
