Johann Pachelbel was an organist and composer of keyboard, church and
chamber music. His fame spread internationally, despite the fact that he
never left his native Germany.
Pachelbel's biography tells us that he was an Organist at Erfurt and Eisenach, where became a friend of the Bach family. He became the music teacher of Johann Cristoph, who later taught his brother, Johann Sebastian Bach. Thus, it would seem that Pachelbel played an important role in the development of the 'German Baroque.'
He was most celebrated as a composer of Keyboard music, though his works, such as the 'Six Suites for Two violins and Continuo' - the 'Musicalische Ergotzung' (which include scordatura passages) - and the beautiful Canon and Gigue, have helped establish Pachelbel's reputation as an inventive composer of Chamber Music.
