Johann Sebastian Bach

We’ve been listening to Johann Sebastian Bach for several weeks now. I especially love these:

Suites for solo cello, performed by Yo-Yo Ma:

I love Suite No. 1. I first heard it in the movie Master and Commander (starring Russell Crowe) and then in one of the episodes in the TV series House.

Goldberg Variations, performed by Glenn Gould:

The guy is simply brilliant. Here’s a studio version wherein you can see him in action:

And here it is on harpsichord, performed by Pierre Hantai:

We’ve played all of the above for our baby, who is almost two-months old now. We want to immerse him (and ourselves) in quality music so that he will learn to love it early in his life.

What is your favorite Bach piece?
