So how old would he be? I've been realizing something: either one can play bach or cannot. Just like Rachmaninov and Brahms, Bach is just too technically difficult that it weeds out the novices.

Just a thought.

what also is interesting is that after 322 years, we still have Bach's music. Aren't there original manuscripts still in existance? That in itself is amazing.


<----A person who can't play Bach....yet 8)

Oh bollocks... There is suitable Bach music for everyone. He is your best friend and tutor whether you are an absolute beginner or a top virtuoso. If you can't play even the simplest pieces, do not blame that on Bach.

Heh... such a good old knee-jerk reaction always make me feel better :wink:
