    Johann Sebastian Bach!!!

    My favorite of the "B" brothers of classical, he was a true musical genius.

    "While Bach's fame as an organist was great during his lifetime, he was not particularly well-known as a composer."


    Wut?!

    This is a YouTube playlist. Several videos are chained together, so you can let Herr Bach play, and you don't have to keep starting new vids. Includes my two favorite Brandenburg concertos, nos. 3 and 5.

    Actually he almsot disappeared (other than the church) until "rediscovered" by Mendelssohn. This despite the incredible output of incredibly wonderful stuff.

    If you've never heard an 8 part fugue - check out his first motet - "Singet dem Herrn". Even Mozart was blown away when he heard it and asked to see a score.
