October 11, 2012

We’ll discuss Johann Sebastian Bach’s musical DNA from the 17th Century through today with writer PAUL ELIE. He looks at how the master’s music has been flexible through evolving technologies and has influenced countless popular songs. We’ll play some examples of Bach’s music and learn more about the composer, organist and inventor’s life. Elie’s new book is “Reinventing Bach.”
