Why a class on Johann Sebastian Bach? Because he was a genius and he wrote all those dang fugues.
We had a good crowd and a lively time sharing comments, asking questions and listening to Bach, yesterday. Thank you for attending and making the class so enjoyable. We covered a lot of ground, including why Bach is the Great Consolidator, how he expanded the possibilities of instruments such as the Baroque trumpet, how he painted words with exquisite poignancy and why his music is like catnip to arrangers.
Next class is all about his contemporary, George Frideric Handel, Nov. 3. Hope to see you there.
