German composer known for the Brandenburg concertos, suites, preludes and chorales. Bach came from a long line of musicians and his first major job, at age 18, was church organist. He was cantor for 27 years at St. Thomas's Church in Leipzig. His music is the apotheosis of the dazzlingly intricate fugue and one of the finest exponents of baroque through history. Though he received little recognition during his lifetime, his power continued to exalt, soothe, mystify, delight and instruct well into the 20th century.

He was married twice and had more than 20 kids, seven with his first wife and thirteen with the second. Of those who survived, four of his sons became distinguished composers in their own right.

In the summer of 1749, his sight began to fail, probably due to glaucoma.

Died of apoplexy on 7/28/1750, Leipzig, Germany.
