Frau Bach

As all my regular readers know, one of my most favourite pieces of music is Bach's Cello Suites, in particular, the Pablo Casals recording, and lately, the Truls Mørk recording.

I was listening to the morning radio on Tuesday and heard something really interesting. It was a theory that it was not Johann Sebastian who wrote the piece, but his second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach.

See - 'Bach's wife believed to have penned cello works' on AM, ABC Radio (18 April 2006). You can even listen to the story.

Anna Magdalena kept an extensive notebook of her 'husband's' music. It might just so happen that they were actually hers.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


I was so cold last night and wasn't allowed under the covers. Finally in the middle of the night, my human let me under.

Today I mostly napped. It's what I do best.
