Brandenburg Concertos

If one were asked to name one musician who came closest to composing without human flaw, I suppose general consensus would choose Johann Sebastian Bach...
- Aaron Copland

This is not the first time I've posted about J.S. Bach. See here and here. There are also mentions of him here and his son here. Odds are good that he'll be Bach.
