  2. Das Wohltemperierte Klavier (1st of 2)

    En français

    When we began our monthly series Once Upon the Internet last year, our intent was to use it to share some of the finds we made over the years on now defunct sites, so that other music lovers could enjoy them, or add them to their digital collection.

    For the next two weeks, I’m very pleased to bring you what I personally consider to be my “best ever find” through data mining, dating back almost 12 years now, from the original MP3.COM. Today’s discussion

  4. "Back to Bach" - A different take on the Brandenburgs (1st of 2)

    This month on ITYWLTMT and on PTB, it is "Back to Bach" month, where we feature discussions on the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, "two-for" style. Later this month, we will discuss the Well-Tempered Clavier on a pair of Once Upon the Internet posts, and for the next couple of weeks, a chance to dust up my two montages that take a “different look” at the Brandenburg Concertos (from December last year).
