never enough

I could listen to him play Bach all day, all week, all month.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I, excerpt (Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C major); Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997, piano), live, Austria (Innsbruck), 1974


(This recording—all four-plus glorious hours—is available on Spotify: search “Richter, Bach, Innsbruck.”)
