Although I prefer the Eastern guys, like Rachmaninoff, Smetna, Dvorak, Dukas, and Holst, there is no denying the unequaled legacy left by J.S. Bach…
By the way, that Gustav Holst really had it going on; music teacher at a all gurls school. That’s whut I’m talkin about!
I celebrated J.S’s B’day recently by luxuriating in this recital and a round of Bach flower remedies. I’m now almost healed. Since his departure I can’t think of another who ranks quite as high on the Richter Scale.
Thanks for that video with Karl Richter … what amazing skill on such a complex piece. 300+ years later, Bach’s music is still so much alive and influential. It was a pleasure to hear one of my favorites on the radio that day, his Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuMtEof9MWs
And here is the 500th anniversary piece composed by Oscar Peterson in honour of JSB.
Bravo! Herr Richter!
Truly an amazing man , genius would be a better description
