I thank Milan for the notice. I'm not much of a "celebration" guy and
was not aware this is the day. But, I listened to the Goldberg Variations
from Tureck on DG earlier today (great interpretation) and currently have
Gardiner's Funeral Cantatas playing in the cd-rom. I don't generally plan
my listening selections or much of anything else, but in recognition of
Bach's birthday, I'll be listening to some different period instrument
versions of the cello suites. Bruns on Opus 111 and Sheppard on Metronome
are prime selections as I have not given them sufficient play time.
