Happy B- Day Johann!

Today we celebrate the birthday of one of the most famous and influential composers of all time: Johann Sebastian Bach. Born some 321 years ago in Eisenach, Bach's music has elevated him to be known to some as the "Immortal God of Composers". Any musician cannot go through his or her career without playing some Bach, and those who play violin or cello most likely will end up coming across either his Sonotas and Partitas for Violin or his Solo Suites for cello. These pieces, when played correctly, exibit incredible emotion unlike anything that has ever been written for a solo instrument. I have incredible recordings of both the Violin and Cello Suites; Nathan Milstein, arguably amoung the best who ever played, plays the Violin Suites, and Yo Yo Ma, of course one of the best, plays the cello suites.

Here is Solo Bach at its best; do yourself a giant favor and download both of these. You wont regret it.

Sonaten & Partiten for Violin, Sonata No.1 - Nathan Milstein

The Cello Suites - Inspired By Bach: Suite No 1 - Yo Yo Ma

If you want to know more about Bach and hear more Bach, look in our archives.
Oh, and like always, i hope you enjoy the music.

Use a proxy server and the seamonkey browser. Megauplard is easier to trick than rapidshare..


But you have to find your own proxy list.. US users dont seem to have the same penalties as humble Polish and Argentinian users ;) .

Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier
If I had to be left on a desert island with only a 150m of mp3, I'd take this.

Yo Yo is excellent (I own this set of CDs and play it often) but for more of the 'breath and essence' of the instrument and the music I like Peter Wispelwey. Or, of course, Pablo Cassals. Got anything of him in the Masterfader library?

Hello, I was wondering if you could upload some Karlheinz Stockhausen material, I´m starting to listen to it and I think it´s amazing.
