It was Wanda Landowska’s birthday a couple of days ago. I was listening to this beautiful 46 minute piece on YouTube and, I swear, it was interrupted twice by screaming commercials “Chrysler Sales Event!!!” and something else, was it “Niacin for relief of acid indigestion!!!”? Nothing like trashing the good things of the world. Wanda and Bach are turning in their graves. Anyway, here is a classic recording.
As today is Bach’s birthday and I need to post something to get started with my music blog, I”ll post one of my all time favorite concertos.
