Couldn't find a similar thread.

This is a thread for some appreciation of Bach. What are your favourite pieces? And what performances?

I'll start with a well known piece: BWV 582 - His passacaglia and fugue in Cm.

Unfortunately I don't know the organist here - but I prefer this piece sounding majestic and chilling, rather than soft like on most recordings.

I got a 5cd set of Bach's stuff, I haven't listened to it a whole lot besides the Brandenburg Concertos, which I quite enjoy.

Uh, I'm a Bach/classical n00b.

The Art of the Fugue is probably my favorite, along with Goldberg Variations.
Why too much to listen to all of his work
