Musical Interlude: Johann Sebastian Bach

On March 21, 1685,  Johann Sebastian Bach was born. If I could only listen to the music of one artist for the rest of my life, it would be the music of Bach. Thanks, J.S., for bringing such sublime beauty into this sometimes ugly world!

(And thanks to musicians like Glenn Gould, Pablo Casals, Wanda Landowska, Isaac Stern, Trevor Pinnock, Andras Schiff, etc., for being such fantastic interpreters of Bach's music!)
