NYTimes, 7/21/00: Bach You Can't Live Without

by Ira Rosenblum

"Unless you've been living under a rock or enjoying an extended vacation
on Mars, you must be aware that this year marks the 250th anniversary of
the death of one of Western civilization's true icons, Johann Sebastian
Bach. With the deluge of concerts and CD releases this past season
commemorating the event, you might think the anniversary has already
passed. In fact, the actual date is July 28. To mark the occasion, I asked
a number of musicians an admittedly impossible question: If you were
stranded on a desert island and could have just one Bach recording, which
would it be? Here is how they answered."

...And Mr. Gould captures more votes than any other artist.

Have a great day, fellow f-minors.
