Listeners and fans of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach's twenty-first son (of twenty children) will be delighted to learn of this new anthology, compiled from the Master of Wein-am-Rhein's most popular works on Telarc.
Selections included are from such catastrophic works as the dramatic oratorio Oedipus Tex; Classical Rap; The Short-Tempered Clavier; Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Winds and Percussion; Four Folk Song Upsettings; The Musical Sacrifice , and more.
Professor Peter Schickele, discoverer of P.D.Q., also holds the awesome responsibility for editing his vast oeuvre. The Professor recently donated his midge collection to the Museum of Natural History in New York City. His latest book, volume seven of his autobiography, is titled: A Pilgrim on the Staff of Life: The Puberty Years, and will be published next summer.
