While some people may dream about meeting Chopin, Scriabin, or maybe Granados, I sometimes muse about the idea what I would say when I had the opportunity go back in time and meet JS Bach in person. There is no human being I revere more than Bach, it comes as near to being religious as can be. It seems likely he would be a small, rotund, probably slightly impatient man, maybe a bit unkempt, smelling of smoke, unwashed clothes, and what not. I guess I would probably be too overcome with awe and emotion to utter a single word, and would have to resist the urge to hug him, instead maybe dropping down to kiss his feet. While JSB would in all probablity be thinking 'I wish all these suckers would leave me alone', as he was just putting together next sunday's Cantata and a couple of fugues in his head. If only things like that could happen.... It's a silly but entertaining fantasy. I am sure some of you have similar ones.
