Notes & Reviews:

Johann Sebastian Bach is, for many, the greatest composer ever. He was also one of the most versatile, and wrote virtuosic harpsichord and organ music, including concertos and sacred choral music, according to the demands of his respective employers. He is considered to have brought the Baroque to its magnificent climax by finally consolidating the achievements of the whole era in his works.
