Exciting stuff.
Yes, thank you! I see five of his children were composers and/or musicians:

J.S. Bach's musical children
Bach family - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of the seven children that Johann Sebastian Bach had with his first wife only three survived him. Two of these had musical careers of their own: Wilhelm Friedemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bach then married Anna Magdalena Wilcken, herself a gifted soprano and daughter of the court trumpeter of Prince Saxe-Weissenfels. They had 13 children, of whom Gottfried Heinrich, Johann Christoph Friedrich and Johann Christian became significant musicians
I have read elsewhere on Wikipedia that Carl's older brother Wilhelm sadly died in poverty and seems to have had a lot of disappointments, but both were considered excellent composers during their lives. I've been listening to some of their music today.

My previously posted Tartini videos were deleted from youtube. Here's two more. Please listen to both. Loudly.

The site won't let me post videos yet, so look up Bach's cello suite no. 2 4th movement.
This suite is so dark, and brooding. It always makes me wonder what happened to music to make it lose its depth... There is no reason that music should have gotten away from such a meaningful level (and I'm talking about later classical music too).

Look up vivaldi's double violin concerto in A minor also.


Vivaldi blows my mind every time I put on one of his records as well. Once again, the depth is astounding.

Vivaldi's 'Concerto for two horns in F major' (RV 539)
1. Allegro 2. Larghetto 3. Allegro
Tapani & Viertonen (horns); Finnish Baroque Orchestra - 8:16



I like this. That's why I posted it.

Buxtehude's 'Prelude in G Minor' (BuxWV 149)
René Saorgin



This is my favorite Buxtehude.
The definitive rendition is E. Power Biggs' performance in 'The Art of the Organ'.

As overplayed as Pachelbel's Canon is, I have to say that it is one of the most enjoyable pieces to play! I remember the excitement I felt as a child when I first played the canon, and I still love to do so whenever I have a chance with a small ensemble ... which isn't often enough.

Pachelbel's Canon played using Baroque Instruments
including a Baroque organ and theorbo!

Performed by the San Francisco Early Music Ensemble Voices of Music
using Baroque bowing technique:



What is a theorbo? I asked this, too. Here is a theorbo in the hands of some Baroque man in a cool, striped tunic/overshirt:

Theorbo player, 1615
Painting by Antiveduto Grammatica (Italian painter, 1571-1626)
Galleria Sabauda, Turin, Italy

Yes, it is.

I never thought I'd hear Bach's Prelude No. 1 in C Major paired with square-dancing cigarettes from a 1948 Lucky Strike commerical!

Here's another great classicish song that uses that video:

"Smoke Up Kids!" Misleading Cigarette Commerical
I wish they'd aired THIS in 1948! I also wish more Baroque songs included the accordion among their favored instruments.
