It’s Bach’s Birthday! Watch Julian Bream Play the Fugue from ‘Violin Sonata No. 1,’ BWV 1001

We’re celebrating the 334th birthday Johann Sebastian Bach today (March 21)! I swear, the ol’ guy doesn’t look a day over 300. Sick jokes aside, it’s amazing how his music continues to excite and amaze and move us centuries down the line. And who better to represent the genius on this day than Julian Bream, who plays the fugue from Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 1 (BWV 1001). —Blair Jackson
