Bach Praeludium I

November 26, 2010

Just listen for a while.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Praeludium I could be described in one word: simple. No big fancy codes. Even the beginners could master this song in 30 minutes.

However, the true beauty that Bach wanted to express truly comes out from the simplicity. It brings peace to anyone listening to the music.

It is well-known that Bach was a devout christian and devoted all his music to God. It is shown clearly through a lot of his music; it gives you an insight to the heaven for a moment. His sincerity and his heart for peace and beauty are very well expressed.

For me, this music is one of my favorite. It rouses the deep peace inside my heart that no other music can–pop, jazz, rock, Mozart, Beethoven–whatever it might be. Also, it is astonishing for me sometimes how simplicity could truly be beautiful.

Please enjoy 🙂
