March 21, 1685

On this day in 1685, Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach, Germany.

A virtuoso composer, Bach is admired for his musical complexities as well as for his stunningly beautiful pieces such as ‘Air’, which is still, to this day, heard everywhere from movie screens to funerals. He is considered one of the greatest Western composers of all time.
