Default Johann Sebastian Bach

No need to explain who this man is. I recently downloaded Glenn Gould's cover of Bach's Goldberg Variations, and I simply love them. I have been rather negligent in my approach towards Boroque-period classical music so I decided to check it out.

Does anyone have any idea what I should listen to next? (*cough* *cough* Burning Down).

Currently learning "bouree in e minor", great piece of music and very fun to play.

check out "Air on the G String" and "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" if you haven't already

and if you're feeling adventuruous, check out the Brandenburg Concertos, especially Nos 2 & 5

I love that album. That's what finally got me on the road to checking out more classical.

The first thing that comes to mind is his Cello Suite No.1 played beautifully here by this guy..


JS Bach is pretty much the King of Baroque but there are so many other great baroque composers and musicians. You should peruse the Post your baroque music here thread. Lots of Bach in there if you mostly want to focus on him.

One of the main reasons the violin kicks ass.

Some of his preludes are fantastic pieces, some are also very easy and enjoyable to play (Prelude in C major).

Then there's "Toccota & Fugue" in D, to this day my favourite piece for the organ.

Some scholars think Toccata and Fugue in D Minor has been falsely attributed to Bach and that it was actually written by someone else.

Summary for the layman : A haunting tune, but is it really Bach's?

I'm proud to say that Toccata & Fugue is one of my first transcriptions by ear to the guitar, without any aid of tablature or sheet music

it doesn't sound very good on guitar, though
