Gavotte

So, like you, I’ve been loving me some embedded youtube on the MOGs of the MOG -O-SPHERE. There’s no excuse for why I haven’t lit up my own text with video stars, it’s not like I haven’t come across some fantastic vids while researching these posts. Actually, I came across this vid (see below) not while researching for MOG but for doing something much more tedious yet necessary: tagging all my J.S. Bach tracks with their appropriate BWV catalog numbers. Oh yes. (How else would I be able to easily tell the difference between Bach’s Gavotte in E flat major (BWV 1012) from Bach’s Gavotte in C Minor (BWV 1011) whilst tending to my pee-threes on a lazy Sunday?)

Well, mission accomplished and fontgoddess and my philatelist father will be so proud (stamp fiends know what I’m talking about). But said mission would not have been accomplished without referencing the great video library at youtube and listening to the master, Andres Segovia performing Gavotte BWV1012 in a tv performance recorded December 10, 1956. I am so pleased to share it with you!
