I had a borrowed car for the past few days, and I heard an interview on NPR about this new recording of some Bach violin fare:

 

I’m not sure I would buy this album, as the whole one violinist, two parts thing is a little gimmicky, but hearing the piece played on the radio yesterday reminded me how utterly perfect and lovely the slow movement of the Bach Double Violin Concerto in D minor is.  Sample here. It’s one of my favorite things in the whole universe: the one piece of music I’d have on my desert island.

I realize this must sound like an ad for this recording, but it’s not and I haven’t been compensated in any way.
