  • How wonderful to find this in my inbox this morning…..two great passions in my current life …. Baroque music (mostly Bach) and knitting. How lovely at 5 am on a rainy, windy Saturday morning with coffee mug at my side.

    • Amen!

    • Thanks for this, Kay. I am lifted up.

  • What a gift!
    Thank you

  • What a fabulous link! I have always loved Bach, and the 3 harpsichords and orchestra is sensational particularly. Lucia Swarts is an incredible musician

  • Bach is the bomb. Thanks for this.

  • 4 words: Brandenburg Concerto No. 3

    • YES! Brandenburg No. 3 is the best!!

  • OH, MY, thank you for this! I have it playing now and just love it. What a blessing to know about this.

  • Another wonderful link! Going to hear some Baroque music tonight, this will prepare me, thanks.

  • Thank you for your brilliant and varied posts, especially the music and literature ones. I am so happy to have discovered your blog!

  • Well this is just wonder-full! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Currently I can’t knit having had hand surgery and it will be awhile,alas. But I can listen and this lovely Bach treat has me happily in another sphere. Thank you so much

  • Thank you so much!! This is so amazing!!

  • What is better than my own private concert? Thank you for bringing this to me and allowing an experience not easily obtainable. Knitting aside, I enjoyed watching the performers as they combined their efforts and made such beautiful sounds, a tapestry of sorts but in the audible. Thank you so much.

  • Fabulous, what a great find, combining two passions at the same time.

  • I can’t thank you enough for sharing this treasure this morning. The music, the history, the instruments, the performers – 266 Master Classes! Isn’t the Internet an amazing thing? And I feel so very fortunate that its explosion has coincided with my retirement years. Between All Of Bach and Knit Stars, and all of the other things you bring, I won’t be getting much else done.

    • You have spoken beautifully for me as well, Sarah!

  • Thanks for this!

  • Beautiful! And that violoncello da spalla is fascinating! Thank you

  • What a beautiful project! Such a generous gift to Bach lovers around the world, especially to folks who can’t get to concerts or have none where they live. Thanks for sharing this. I’m knitting to Bach today!

  • Ok, so to report back, there is a reason why we know about Bach, and not some of the ‘lesser’ composers. OTOH, there were quite a few knitters in the audience. My husband suggested that there was probably a significant crossover demographic….

  • ohhhh lovely ! I was actually wondering and looking for new inspiration or things to listen to or Watch while knitting. Thanks a lot for that ! 🙂

  • Thank you so much for the Bach, I did not know about this project. I have sent this to everyone I know. Knitters and music lovers . Thank you.to your sons .
