Note to You, A; Bach At The Keyboard

11/22/1998

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote some of his most challenging works for himself. He played them at the organ or clavichord. As a keyboard artist in his own right, Roland Nadeau had a special insight into this music. We’ll hear him introduce some of his favorite artists, including Glenn Gould and E. Power Biggs.
