Brandenburg

Every once in a while, you have a wonderful experience in which you encounter something which you didn’t know you missed, but did. When I was but a small child, I used to love watching a promotional video of (I think) Birmingham University. There was a particular section which showed the Chemistry Department in all its bubbling, interconnected burette tube glory, and it had a happy and perfect piece of music that went along with it.

Today, I found out that the music was from Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos; to be precise, the Concerto in F major, BMV 1057 (Allegro). How did I find this out? Because this piece of music is on an Apple computer on my local network, and iTunes automatically discovers and accesses shared music, and I was browsing through someone’s classical music. The moral of the story? Buy an Apple, and it will make you happy in many ways.
