"There are countless reasons for loving Bach's music. Certain musicians and music-lovers are fascinated by it's complexity, it's flawless craftmanship. Others treasure it for it's emotional, spiritual significance with total absence of sentimentality. Others, still, are seduced by Bach's appealing mixture of transparency and warmth.. When I learn that a composer of Bach's stature published his impressive collection of partitas under the modest title Clavierübung ("Exercise for Keyboard"), and when I read his statement that music's only purpose should be "the glory of God and the recreation of the human spirit", I see that he was manifestly excluding his own person - a gesture that stands in stark contrast with my own generation's chronic hubris and boundless egocentricity."
