Bach stamped his feet

Just read this morning, quite randomly, that Bach stamped his feet when he played.  That makes me feel happy.  I do the same thing, and take a lot of grief about it.  He also wrote at the top of every one of his compositions, “Soli Deo gloria“, “For God’s glory alone.”  Yay!!  

One thought on “Bach stamped his feet”

  1. He often just wrote “SDG,” which everyone who knew him understood. He also often wrote JJ or Jesu Juva — “Jesus, Help Me.” Think I’ll go embroider JJ on my backpack.
