“Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting.” – G. William Liebniz, German philosopher


Perhaps it is true that “Euclid alone has looked on Beauty bare,” but surely Johann Sebastian Bach “heard her massive sandal set on stone” and recorded the sound for our collective edification and delight.

Some additional proof that Liebniz was right and that Bach is glorious:

Surely these Concertos are among the grandest passages in the Music of the Spheres.
