Johann Sebastian Bach was one of the most influential composers of the Baroque period and is likely the most famous composer in the history of music. During his life, he composed well over a thousand pieces of music (that we have record of) for many instruments and voices. The combination of creativity, simplicity, technical superiority and utter genius found in his compositions still baffles musicians to this day.
The recital is free and open to the public.
