Sunday Songs: Bach's Goldberg Aria with House in Provence by Paul Cézanne
Who doesn't like J.S Bach (1685-1750) and Paul Cezanne (1839-1906)? Somebody I suppose but not me. I love them both. Bach's musical harmonic structures just remind you that there is peace, joy and purpose in the universe especially if you forget sometimes with the insanity that goes on in our world. Ditto for Cezanne.
'House in Provence' (1885-1886) oil painting by Paul Cézanne.
Music: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988-Aria da Capo played by Shelley Katz.
