Composer Study: Bach

Listen with your children to Sally and her friend Terri Moon, an accomplished classical violinist, as they share inspirational stories of the life of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Brandenburg Concertos, Nos. 1-6

Well Tempered Clavier, Book 1. (Note that this is performed on a harpsichord, the instrument Bach wrote it for. There are also some beautiful paintings to accompany the music!)

Toccata and Fugue in D Minor (with a great photo of a baroque organ!)
