    Baby got Bach

    I'm going to mention @Sappho here because I think she's probably the resident classical expert, but I was hoping someone could refer me to some good works by Bach.

    Something other than the Fugue in D Minor?

    I do have a record of something else of his, but I can't recall the name of it. I think it might have been Brandenburg something, but that could just be the name of the orchestra.

    Anyone else is free to go for Baroque, as well.

    I tend towards the more mathy side of Bach

    The Musical Offering is about as dorky and brainy as you can get, lots of musical puzzles and ciphers
    Art Of The Fugue is similar, but more focused and complete, less rewarding to the casual listener

    Glenn Gould is controversial, but I love his approach, he makes Bach very "alive". It's particularly fun to listen to his two recorded versions of the goldberg variations, one recorded when he was a young firebrand, the other when he was a wizard shut-in.

    The Brandenberg Concertos are great. The Well-tempered Clavier is great. Pablo Casals' cello suites are great, but the sonic fidelity isn't great.

    Oh, you

    This would be a good place to start:

    An eternal favourite of Bach sons, Carl Philipp Emanuel, is well worth a listen, too, for his sheer zest and audacious modulations.

    One of my favourites is the Harpsichord Concerto in D minor (BWV 1052).
    I was Isagel in another place....
