Bach’s Ricercare à 6

October 27, 2013

I am blessed to attend an evangelical church which still has an organ and professional organist — an increasing rarity in these barbaric days. For those who are not so fortunate, you should at least compensate by joyfully attuning your ears to this wonderful piece by Bach:

This is from Bach’s Musikalisches Opfer (BWV 1079), which together with his Die Kunst der Fuge (BWV 1080) is among his most celebrated and complex works. You can acquire both in this two-disc set.
