Happy Birthday Happy Birthday!

Today is the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685). It is important to spell out the full name as a number of JS Bach's sons went on to achieve musical fame.

JS Bach was a prodigious composer composing over 1100 pieces, an amazing number. WA Mozart who comes shortly after JS Bach composed over 600 works, and Beethoven appears to have composed about half of that, and it seems to me as time goes on composers publish less work.

Anyway, here is one of my favorite Bach pieces:

Happy birtday JS Bach – you would be 323 years old today!
