Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach into a musical family. Bach’s career followed a very steady progression, from organist to Konzertmeister and onwards to Kapellmeister, then to Kantor and finally director of music. This logical sequence is mirrored in Bach’s creative output, which can be said to be carefully and rationally crafted, building upon the conventions of his predecessors with his own genius innovations. In his own lifetime, he found great fame as a keyboard virtuoso and throughout his life built a reputation as a composer, the legacy of which gives him a position as a unique historical figure.
