He was a virtuoso of the keyboard and organ; among the most famous composers of his era, influencing nearly every major comopser in Europe by developing the keyboard Suite, and contributing immensely to the exchange of musical traditions through his extensive travels (which ranged to Vienna, Rome, Florence, Mantua, Dresden, Cologne, Zeeland, Brabant, Antwerp, Brussels, London, Paris, Heidelberg, Nuremberg, and Regensburg). He is also famous for his highly idiomatic and personal descriptive harpsichord pieces, which are among the earliest known examples of program music.
