Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)
Born:

The Artist:
One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and canons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
Composed:1748-9
Info:
The Art of Fugue (Die Kunst Der Fuge) BWV 1080 contains fourteen fugues and four canons demonstrating Bach's complete mastery of the most complex musical counterpoint. This is Contrapunctus 1 arranged for String Quartet
