A giant among composers and musicians of Europe's pre-classical era, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) spent most of his life as music director at St. Thomas Church in Leipzig. He was master of the dominant musical style of his period--the Baroque--which this volume explains in detail--and also presents sketches of other important Baroque composers.
