Are you on Twitter — and love classical music? Then you should know about the #BachaDay hashtag. For the month of October, we’ll be using that hashtag to share the music of Bach — or rather, Bachs.
Most #BachaDay tweets will be about Johann Sebastian Bach, of course, like this one:If you have a favorite work/performance/arrangement of Bach’s, then just say so and use the hashtag. If you can also provide a link to the work/performance/arrangement, even better.
#BachADay The Art of the Fugue. Glenn Gould havin’ a good day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uX-5HOx2Wc …@GlennGouldFndn
Personally, I’ll be going through the family tree:
For #BachaDay the cantata “Let us cast off the works of darkness” by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach
For #BachaDay I’m enjoying Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach ‘s Magnificat http://ht.ly/xo8j304SUgI(CPE was JS’ 2nd eldest son)
Arrangements of Bach’s music count for #BachaDay:
My 1st #BachADay disc is the new @MattHaimovitz Overtures to Bach. http://several-instruments.blogspot.ca/2016/08/bach-terminal-point.html
#BachADay Walt Disney + Leopold Stokowski = great animation + impressive music. This is so much fun! https://youtu.be/z4MQ7GzE6HY
And even PDQ Bach. In fact, the month started with a riff on Bach initials (which you can find by using the hashtag).
