The Friday OT: JS Bach, BWV 974 Adagio

For those of you who get antibodies about the whole idea of long chunks of classical music, try this. A four minute part of a JS Bach concerto which he originally wrote for the oboe but adapted for keyboard. Back then that almost certainly meant harpsichord and there's a whole JS Bach fundamentalist movement who will tell you that Bach on a piano isn't correct, but I don't care a jot. This is a morsel of beauty and I defy anyone to turn their nose up.

It also sums my week up perfectly. Youtube here.
