Bach: Concerto for 3 Harpsichords, Strings and Basso continuo in C-Major, BWV 1064.

Great piece of luck to find this piece by Bach this bright Wednesday morning.

One of the nice things about living in Europe is, its access to Baroque era music played on 17th/18th Century original instruments. There is a little piece of joy to listen an on stage performance like this.

  1. Beautiful piece. Thanks for re-blogging. BTW…I just can’t find the discipline to comment, at length, on the 2nd Baltimore piece you sent. I suppose we will simply need to acknowledge we observe from different perspectives. As I always say to my wife, “If two people always agree, one of them is not necessary” I still think you would ave been a great roomate in college/grad school…as long as you liked a steady diet of Buxtehude and E. Power Biggs.

      • Mt. St. Mary’s University, Emmitsburg Maryland, (class of 1982) and then some grad work at Xavier Univ. in Cincinnati while I attended the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. Where ever I was, I found an organ to listen to. My mother, who is now 82, was a church organist at Sacred Heart Church in Irvington, NJ and appears on over twenty records made during the 1950’s /60’s. While in Cincinnati, I hung out with an outstanding organist/philosopher and and learned about organ construction, theory and…life. A framed photo of Bigg’s gravestone hangs in my office. I took the picture myself at Mt. Auburn Cemetery, outside of Boston in 1986.

        I lived in Gaithersburg for 20 years and now live in DC. I think you probably read I saw Virgil Fox play in HS. He played toccata and fugue I d min and I was enthralled. Does mom still play? What a blessing to grow up with a musician!
