More Back-Engineered Bach Thursday

May 7, 2013

Here's what forensic scientists think Bach looked like without his wig. And you can hear what scholars think some of his works sounded like in lost original versions on Barney Sherman's show each afternoon. Thursday's show also includes the "Courtly Dances" from Britten's Gloriana, a powerful new recording of Beethoven, and much more.
