As someone who plays the piano, I've played some of his stuff and I can't help but think that he's a genius... as well as many composers.

Without a doubt.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 10:24:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I adore the Brandenburg Concertos.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 10:27:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Which one? There are a few.

Johan Sebastian Bach was ok, can fall asleep to some of his stuff

JS Bach? Definitely a genius. Those organ preludes, tocattas, fantasias, and fugues are just so intricately written and at certain times, sound so powerful and invigorating.

^And mathematical in their precision, in terms of melody and counter-melody.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 11:06:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
Definitely!

Thats why one of his albums is called Bach At Bedtime.

No, he was a pianist!

Funny, his stuff makes me so wired. I listen to his Well Tempered Clavier and I just go nuts.. my mind starts working like mad.. it's pretty cool, actually..

16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 12:49:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Heck yes he was.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 1:25:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not really sure how one could make a raional arguement that he wasnt.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 1:40:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes he is. One of the greatest genius this planet had.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 1:41:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
YES! that is all there is to it.

I would like to see everyone that answers 'yes' to this question give a rational argument why he was.

16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 1:48:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
He composed many complicated songs?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 3:31:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Who?

Okay. He developed a complex basis for the baroque style of music, so that any chord structure played would work. He developed music that was overwhelmingly moving to the emotions while at the same time being technically, mathematically exact.

what about beethoven?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/19/05 - 5:11:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
he is just a genius in music.

Exactly. Bach found the mathematical rules that apply to pleasing music... not a lot different from early physicists that determined the mathematical relationships for movement of objects.

He was definitely a genius.
