Preludes and Fugues by Bach and Shostakovich played alongside each other. Shostakovich was inspired to write his collection of 24 Preludes and Fugues after hearing pianist Tatiana Nikolayeva playing Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier at Leipzig's 1950 Bicentennial Bach competition.

In the first part of the show, we finished Sviatoslav Richter's 1976 recording of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II, which we had started a few weeks ago. The show concluded with another legendary Russian interpreter of Bach, Mstislav Rostropovich, playing the C minor Suite for unaccompanied cello.

Instead of programming Afternoon Classical and Bach Hour separately, we did something of a Bach 3-Hour to celebrate the life and work of the late Gustav Leonhardt, who passed away on Monday the 16th. Thanks to Dorian Bon who helped with the selections.
