Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Johann Sebastian Bach traveled throughout Europe during the 18th-century, working as an organist and composer in service to both churches and royalty. He gained his reputation principally through his musicianship as an organist, though he also played the harpsichord and violin. Though Bach composed a number of masterful works during his travels, he did not receive full recognition from his contemporaries for his compositional brilliance. Since the mid-19th century, however, Bachs works have been celebrated for their intellectual depth and mastery of counterpoint. ©Copyright 1994. Microsoft® Encarta.
