Bach [JS]

On March 31, 1685

this man was born:

Johann Sebastian Bach

Glad I found this image of JS… it was the one hanging over my piano, like a hammer of sorts! 😉

Oannes has already done an amazing tribute,
however I did want to add a few more gems,
very dear to me.

Double Violin Concerto in D Minor, BWV 1043

Itzhak Perlman & Pinchas Zukerman
English Chamber Orchestra – Dir. Daniel Barenboim

French Suite No. 3 in B Minor, BWV 814:

I. Allemande

Vladimir Ashkenazy

3. Sarabande

4. Menuett

I would have added the whole Suite, but unfortunately couldn’t find it in one video…
and last:

St Matthew Passion – Matthäus-Passion BWV 244

Erbarme dich, mein Gott

Philippe Herreweghe, Collegium Vocale Gent, Andreas Scholl

  1. His music is very pretty! The only piece I can think of that is prettier is “Für Elise” by Beethoven.
    Yet, “Für Elise” is perhaps one of the few classic pieces I can say I know.
