Maestros such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, George Frideric Handel, and Johann Pachebel amongst other greats; all became highly-respected pillars of the genre. As this musical type continues to perpetrate halls and theaters, the younger generation of Germans dared to deviate from this traditional genre.
