Today is Johann Sebastian Bach’s 325th birthday. I listened to the Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 (my favorite of the set), and the cantata Christ lag in Todesbanden and selections from the Well-Tempered Clavier. Last week I listened to the St. Matthew Passion. This week I intend to hear the St. John Passion, as well.
I know this older photo doesn’t show the composer’s correct age, but I love it anyway.
