In his day, J. S. Bach was renowned throughout Germany as a great keyboard virtuoso. Once, after a village organist had walked in on Bach practicing, he said to Bach, "Sir, you are either the devil himself, or Mr. Bach!" Not surprisingly, Bach composed quite a bit for the organ and harpsichord, most of it still in the standard repertoire today. Using legendary recordings, this course will cover the organ music, solo keyboard works like the Well-Tempered Clavier, Suites and Goldberg Variations, as well as the concertos for keyboard and orchestra.
