The Buxtehude Dude
I was not familliar with the work of Deiterich Buxtehude, but I've always read that he was a huge influence on J. S. Bach, so I decided to buy a couple of his fugues online. I have to say I'm very pleased. The Buxtehude Dude writes a pretty mean fugue. Guess I'm a fan. I read somewhere that Bach spent some time following this guy around like he was The Gratefull Dead.
