Who made classical music popular?

Music in general has always been popular. In the Renaissance, the only music they had was music from composers such as Susato and had instruments such as the rommelpot (this instrument in real life is a straw and a lid on a cup. You pull the straw up and down and the sound you hear is the sound a rommelpot makes). Back then, that music was popular. As time progressed, the music composed in their era became popular and so on on and so forth. So the question of "who" made classical popular can't really be answered correctly. Every era had their "shining composer" such as Mozart in the classical era, and Bach in the baroque era. They made their music popular to their era and even now. When have you heard Morning by Grieg and immediately thought classical music? His music makes his era popular. Even now, if you ever get the chance to hear Einstein on the Beach by Phillip Glass, a modern composer, you'll find his music appealing and find that the music in our era is popular.

What made Johann Sebastian bach famous?

During JS Bach's lifetime (1685-1750), he was more well known as a performer than as a composer. Other composers such as Palestrina or Handel were far more popular during that time. The "Bach Revival" began in 1829 when Mendelssohn organized a performance of Bach's St. Matthew's Passion which had been neglected since Bach died in 1750. This became a turnpoint in the performance in Bach's music. 1850 an organization called the Bach Gesellshaft was founded, which was devoted to the finding, editing, and publication of Bach's music.His music is amazing! In analyzing any of Bach's music, the motivic developments, progressions, use of voices against other voices, is simply genious.
