Bach

Audio will be available later today.

The hour begins with pianist Martha Argerich playing the second movement from J.S. Bach's Partita No. 2 in C Minor. Argerich stays out of the limelight a little more these days, because the stress of performing night in and night out as a soloist made her re-evaluate her priorities. Luckily, she's left us a plethora of solo recordings.
