You know how to read quotes. But to listen to quotations - in this case Bach quotations ... this is a very special offer, which certainly does not exist elsewhere or about another famous person. This medley is something for connoisseurs and at the same time perfect during a car ride. It is a collection of many, many Bach quotations interpreted by two professional newsreaders. Interrupted are the round 50 Bach quotations from many of Bach's musical works. In the first third, an eight-minute biography gives an overview of Bach's life.
Bach quotations about Bach quotations. The amusing conversation lasts 72 minutes and illustrates why Bach can certainly be classified as the most gifted and greatest composer of all time - of course without regard to the very subjective view of his work. And many people may prefer Mozart, Beethoven or the music of other composers. But for no other musician did so many celebrities get enthusiastic and enthusiastic. The Bach quotations are arranged in such a way that the listener has enough time to think about the content after listening. Bach's musical works are among the composer's best-known and most popular, and you can listen to any of them in full length on "Bach über Bach" before you listen. The third component in the medley is a small, only eight-minute biography of Bach - also spoken by a professional - with the pieces of music you can listen to. Exciting: the Bach quotations themselves naturally outline a broad spectrum: from statements to the point - in three concise words - to the most demanding literary style. And that's why listening several times is always fun. Just listen to a really long sample.
Originally the project was only 20 minutes long and a Bach quote followed the previous one... It did not become more Bach q
uotations after that. But there are more pauses "built in. After an initial mixing, the Bach quotations were so close together that there was hardly any time at all to "appreciate and analyse" them. In the meantime, the most recent and final version is far more than an hour long and, together with Bach's music, a pleasure. The little spoken mini-biography loosens up the collection of Bach quotations and is by the way exactly the biography, without film and pictures of course, which you can also see on "Bach about Bach". Which proves that the mini-biography can also do without "looking at something".
The passages are alternately spoken by a male and a female voice and interrupted by musical passages. Both speakers are professionals who can be heard on the radio from time to time and even seen on television.
