A Bach Birthday at Oberlin #1011
…with students from the Oberlin Conservatory and musicologist Steve Plank, we celebrate ‘live’ at Warner Hall.
J.S. BACH: Chorale-prelude, Allein Gott in der Höh’ sei Ehr, BWV 662 –Jakub Bukowczan, organ.
Filler –Praeludium in G, BWV 550 (see above)
Filler –Fantasy in g, BWV 542 (see above)
And, by way of full disclosure, Michael Barone attended Oberlin from 1964-1968, earned a BM degree in Music History from the Conservatory, studied organ there with Haskell Thomson, who must still be bemused by how things turned out, and got his start in radio as the ‘director of classical music’ at the little student-run campus station WOBC-91.5FM, which no longer broadcasts any classical music.
