Here in New York, WQXR, the sister station of our co-producer WNYC is launching something they're calling Bach 360°.
It's a proper Bach-a-thon — a ten-day Bach marathon festival that explores what Johann Sebastian's music means to modern listeners. It will feature more than 200 hours of Bach over the span of 10 days. That's 20 hours of Bach a day for more than a week.
Jeff Spurgeon, morning host of WQXR, explains how the prolific musician's work will be distributed across the days and weeks. We'll also hear your suggestions for the music you'd like to hear for hours and hours on end.
