Bach + Inspired Artist = Joy

Before we begin, I'd like to thank our source, muz1kf0rever, for providing this evening's delightful performance. I'd also like to highlight the Glenn Gould quote from the channel page linked above:

I believe that the justification of art is the internal combustion it ignites in the hearts of men and not its shallow, externalized, public manifestations. The purpose of art is not the release of a momentary ejection of adrenaline but is, rather, the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity.
- Glenn Gould

The recording's mangling of the orchestral part at the beginning is annoying, but the rest is beautiful enough to forgive it:
