Music Mondays: J.S. Bach, traditional and non-traditional

This week’s listening for students (and others!) are two pieces by J.S. Bach, first, one of the most beautiful pieces written, “Air on the G String,” performed by a traditional string orchestra (intense rendition):

And for piano:

And here is a non-traditional version of Bach’s “Bourée in E Minor” by Jethro Tull that inspired me back in high school when I played the flute:

And one more spin—more jazzy funk—on Tull’s version by a group I love! Project Trio:

Enjoy!
