The second instrumental, I think after about five seconds everybody who has a minimal knowledge of music should know who the composer is. I associate this kind of music with winter and especially with Sundays in December, it has got this comforting ideal world feel, everything falls into place, it is all so well-measured, it’s almost too perfect. That setting was my parents‘ house and I had to escape from it. Of course somehow I have always loved the stringent beauty of a fugue – this is a good example – but in my childhood it has all been a little bit too much. Fortunately these days I can enjoy this presto movement of one of his most famous concerts for violin, two flutes and strings. In the end there is no doubt that he was the greatest of all composers.
