Category Archives: Bach
Usually I post music on Fridays; but Halloween is upcoming, so I’m posting appropriate music every day until then. The “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor”, by Bach, is one of my favorite classical pieces, quite without reference to its (modern) association with the creepy, macabre, and such. Still, it’s now usually associated with such, so enjoy!
After all the Beethoven this week, and with finals now over, a little Baroque music.
My absolute favorite string piece by Bach. It always brings back memories of driving through the mountains in the spring on the way from home back to college (or vice versa) when I was in my 20’s. The video is rather unusual, but in a clever way. In any case, the music always does my heart good. Enjoy!
Update: The original video link seems to have become invalid, so I’ve replaced it with Itzhak Perlman’s version. It’s still great!
