During his lifetime, J.S. Bach (1685-1750) was primarily admired for his virtuosic skills as a harpsichordist and organist, as well as for being an expert on organ building. Today, however, he is generally regarded as one of the greatest composers in the history of music. His innovative works number over 1,000 and include both sacred and secular music, works for keyboard instruments, chamber music, and large works for choir and orchestra.
