Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a german composer and was born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany. Bach's parents died and his brother Johann Christoph (organist for St. Michaels church) took him in. Johann Christoph also taught him the keyboard. He had a total of 20 kids with two wives but only 9 survived. In German, Bach spells out four musical notes B-B flat, A-A natural, H-B natural. He gradually lost his eyesight and was blind the last year of his life. His reputation was mainly as an organist and not as a composer.

Bach died in Leipzig, Germany, on July 28, 1750. Today, he is considered one of the greatest Western composers of all time. Four of his sons carried on the musical tradition.

Minuet

The Minuet in G major is found in the 1725, Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach, is a compilation of music by various composers of the late 17th and 18th century. Most of the entries in the 1725 notebook were made by Anna Magdalena herself, and a few were by Johann Sebastian and various friends of the Bach family.
