A MUSICAL EDUCATION

“Discover Bach” is a three-CD set for Windows. One of the disks has several musical games. You try to identify the instruments used in several compositions. Another CD is a documentary of Johann Sebastian Bach’s life;

Discover Bach the third is a selection of his pieces as recorded by the Moscow Chamber Orchestra. The set is $50 at Amazon.com.

We spent some time with this set and thought it was good fun and instructive. As Beethoven said of Bach: “No brook, he, but an ocean,” making a pun of Bach’s name, which means “brook” in German, and referring to his vast output.
