Why the heck are you talking about "contraception"?!?!?!?!?!

Oh ok. I looked back a few pages and didn't see anything about it, I guess I didn't go far enough.

and, in response to the rest of this, HAYDN INVENTED THE SYMPHONY, you idiots! he wasn' tcalled the "father of the symphony" just randomly! and, in case you forgot, Bach was BAROQUE, Haydn was CLASSICAL. they came after each other. thats like saying "did Washington have lightbulbs in his house? no!!


You could be a little politer, you know. Also, you didn't have to use so many exclamation marks. Additionally, you could learn how to type with out making 5 mistakes in one sentence. Finally, (and this is the last straw) you are incorrect. "Father of the Symphony" is a misnomer. The origins of the symphony actually lie earlier than that.

Everyone in this forum obviously knows the order of the classical periods well enough to know what your thoughtless and pointless remark suggested. None of us suggested that Washington had light bulbs in his house. I would also guess we wouldn't like be called idiots.


To the other, more friendly, people:

Bach's first wife was his second cousin, Barbara.

His second was a soprano in the musicians of the court he worked at, Anna Magdelena. He married her after Barbara died of a sudden disease.

Three of his sons became famous: Carl Philipp Emanuel, Johann Christian (NOT Christoph, as some books call him), and Wilhelm Friedmann.

Hope this clears things up!

He wrote many, many orchestral works (e.g. the Brandenburg Concertos, the Christmas Oratorio, and hundreds of suites).

Default Bach's children

Well, I guess you've never heard the old junior high school joke!

Q: Why did Bach have so many children?

A: There were no stops on his organ!

(ba-da-bum!)

(When I was 12, we all thought this was hilarious!)

It sounded very much like Symphony X with Romeo's typical sound and phrasing. But I never, ever heard of anything if he could become. I noticed that it was actually a piece of Bach. I think that Henry Wood's original scoring may have called for Contrabass Trombone, with the cimbasso being a more nimble supplier of the same sound.
