In the case of J.S. Bach, there was G.P. Telemann, who was enormously popular and extremely prolific, having written in all the same genres as Bach. I'm not even sure if I would call it a rivalry, because Bach couldn't hold a candle to Telemann in his time in terms of popularity. Of course, this has all changed in the years since. There are few who would rate Telemann higher than Bach today, but those people do exist.

There was also Christoph Graupner.
