JACQUES OGG FEATURED IN ALL OF BACH

Watch Lyra’s artistic director Jacques Ogg perform J.S. Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in F-sharp Minor (BWV 859) for the Netherlands Bach Society’s ongoing project, All of Bach. This project seeks to record all of Bach’s works and provide free online access to each recording. Visit Jacques’ All of Bach page to watch him perform this beautiful piece, and to hear an interview about how Jacques started playing harpsichord, why he loves Bach, and how he feels about F-sharp minor.
