* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: At least two recordings of the Third ''Brandenburg Concerto'' supposedly consist of the "First and Second" movements. As most fans know, Bach only wrote First and Third movements (and a placeholder cadenza to stand in for the Second; it is believed that the musicians were supposed to improvise something leading up to it), and the Third Movement is definitely in the style of a Third, not a Second. No prizes for guessing what the so-called "Second Movement" in these recordings actually is.

* ActorInspiredElement: Bach tended to work with the same musicians a lot because they, like him, had the same employers, and you can tell which ones he especially admired, because a cantata will show up with e.g. a juicy trombone part. He wrote some of the most florid and difficult trumpet parts of the era, chiefly because he enjoyed for many years the services of one Gottfried Reiche, perhaps the greatest virtuoso practitioner of the natural trumpet. And he loved incorporating unusual and novel instruments into his works, such as the ''oboe da caccia,'' a tenor oboe made of metal and curved in the shape of a hunting horn.



* DescendedCreator: The first movement of the fifth ''Brandenburg Concerto'' turns into a lengthy and highly virtuosic solo for the harpsichord, which would have been played by Bach himself.
* GenreAdultery: J.S. Bach, the composer most associated with sacred music, writes a mini-drama in cantata form about a sassy girl addicted to coffee.

[[DichterAndDenker German composer and virtuoso organist]] (31 March 1685 28 July 1750) whose works represent the culmination of the Baroque era and whose death is generally considered to mark the point of transition into the Classical era. Bach, [[Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mozart]], and [[Music/LudwigVanBeethoven Beethoven]] are seen as the three main contenders for "Most Sublime Music in Western History," and not without reason.

* DawnOfAnEra: 1685, the year J.S. Bach was born, is widely held to be the year when Tonality in music (as we know it today) was invented by Archangelo Corelli. 1750, the year J.S. Bach died, is widely held to be the year when the Baroque period in music history ended and the Classical period began.

** Some suggested having ''only'' Bach on the record; Creator/CarlSagan said "that would just be showing off".

* The ''Air on the G String,'' the colloquial title given to the 2nd movement of Bach's Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068. Even if you don't follow classical music, and don't know Bach from Bono, it's a certainty you've heard it many times as background music in movies, TV shows, and commercials. A strong contender for "Most Sublimely Beautiful 5 Minutes of Music Ever Composed."

Bach was the most prominent member of an extended family of musicians. Though today he is considered one of the most influential composers in history, in his lifetime he was better known as an organist than a composer; particularly towards the end of his career, his work was deemed outdated by his contemporaries. He was generally not seen as one of the great composers until his works were re-popularized by composer Music/FelixMendelssohn in the early 1800s, and has since been VindicatedByHistory.
