Bach's Sonata No. 1 - Presto
February 3rd, 2020
“The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul” - J.S. Bach
It’s one of my favourite pieces of all time, partly because for me it represents struggle and triumph, a lot like my journey in music. I first started learning this in 2017 and since then, I've come back to it many times to perfect it more and more.
This piece shows virtuosity, and it's techniques have formed part of the progress of ClassicAanu’s music. More importantly, performing music that glorifies God and refreshes the soul is one of ClassicAanu’s core motives. Where else is best to start achieving this purpose than with the music of Bach?
