A reader asks where he should start with Bach if he's a Bach newbie? Any suggestions?
I'll start with... a couple:
St. Matthew Passion: Klemperer (follow in English translation)
Cantatas: Gardiner (choral)
Goldberg Variations: Gould (Gould is an acquired taste)
Cello Suites: Rostropovich (for those w/o FB account)
Orchestral Suites: Hogwood (cheerful)
Complete Organ Works: James Kibbie (free)
