Bach 2005

While a fair share of this country's younger population is probably still recovering from the afterparties and chill out sessions of this year's Street Parade on this rainy Sunday afternoon, I've been reminded of why entering Bach as a search term into my iTunes collection returns a solid 1.3 days of music: Unreal clarity and light-hearted harmony despite of the music's formal complexity. That's what you get (for free) when you go to listen to Bach cantatas in the Predigerkirche.
