Bach changed the musical world for ever like no other. He was the greatest innovator of music of all time. What was before Bach? What would Mozart, Beethoven, Brams, Schubert and all the other great composers have been without Bach? We will never know. Without the inspiration from Bach we will never know what they would have created. Bach's gift to the world is one of the greatest gifts to mankind that ever was.

Agree, Bach is the Godfather of all music. Mozart got inspiration from Bach. Beethoven got inspiration from Bach. Bach's influence on the music development is immesurable. Every composer and musician in the world has been inspired by Bach directly or indirectly.
