Dr Johann Sebastian Bach (* 21. Märzjul./31. Märzgreg. 1685 z Eisenach; † 28. Juli 1750 z Leipzig) isch e dütsche Komponist, Orgle- und Klaviervirtuos vom Barock gsi.

Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) conducts the Berlin Philharmonic in this 1966 performance (some 245 years after the piece was composed) of the Allegro of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 in B flat major, BWV 1051. I created this video from the LP depicted above, entitled "Brandenburgilche Konzerte, Orchestersuiten 2 und 3," and issued by Deutsche Grammophon, serial number 138976/78. The black and white images of Bach and von Karajan, as well as those of the printed text, are taken from the booklet that is included in the boxed set.
