March 6, 1706
- Depending on your source (Some give March 3, others March 9 as the date of interment), today is the 350th anniversary of the death of Johann Pachelbel, most widely known as the composer of the "notorious" Canon in D, but one of the greatest keyboard composers of the late 17th century and one of the teachers of Johann Sebastian Bach's eldest brother, Johann Christoph.

"Those in charge are odd and ambivalent towards music, which means I have to live with almost non-stop vexation, envy, and persecution."
Johann Sebastian Bach, October 28, 1730
