Bach for the Weekend (Performed by Yo-Yo Ma)

Catching Up

It’s been a hectic month.  I try to begin each month with the appropriate selection from Tschaikovsky’s The Seasons, and I post some kind of music, classical or otherwise, every Friday.  I neglected the former at the beginning of this month, and the latter this Friday past.  Therefore, I have rectified this:   you may listen to Tschaikovsky here and Friday’s music–for which I selected Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavierhere.  Enjoy!

For a Change of Pace, Music to Begin the Week: Bach

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!
