Translate into English the Following Article:

Johann Sebastian Bach était un compositeur et organiste allemand. Il est né le 21 Mars 1685. À l'âge de 9 ans, sa mère est morte tragiquement. Son père est mort 8 mois plus tard. Quand Bach était de 10, alors il est allé vivre avec son frère aîné, Christoph Bach. À 14 ans, il part étudier à l'école Saint-Michel à Lüneburg, et il marchait 480 km (300 miles)! Pourtant, il a passé la plupart de sa vie en Allemagne centrale. Sa musique montre qu'il a appris de la musique de compositeurs italiens, français et allemand. Il a passé plusieurs années à travailler au cours de la noblesse en tant que compositeur. Ici, il a écrit la plupart de sa chambre et de la musique orchestrale. La plupart de sa vie, cependant, il a travaillé dans une église où il était attendu pour écrire la musique d'église. Bach a composé presque tous les types de musique à l'exception de l'opéra. Au cours de la dernière partie de sa vie, la plupart des compositeurs ont écrit une nouvelle façon qu'on appelle le style classique, mais Bach a toujours écrit dans le style baroque. Cela fait quelques personnes à la fois penser sa musique est démodé, mais nous savons aujourd'hui que son travail est le meilleur de la musique baroque.

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and organist. He was born on March 21st, 1685. At the age of nine years, his mother died tragically. His father died eight months later. When Bach was ten, he lived with his older brother, Christoph Bach. At fourteen years, he left to study at the school Saint-Michel at Luneberg, and he walked 300 miles. However, he spent the majority of his life in central Germany. His music shows that he had learned about music from Italian, French, and German composers. He spent many years working as a composer in the courts of nobles. Here, he wrote most of his chamber and orchestral music. The majority of his life, however, he worked in a church where he was expected to write church music. Bach wrote almost all types of music, with the exception of opera. During the end of his life, most composers wrote in a new way, called the classical style, but Bach always wrote in the Baroque style. This made some people at the time think that his music was outdated, but now we know that his work is the best of Baroque music.
