The Mash-Up You Never Thought You Wanted: Beatles and Bach
Celebrate the 330th birth anniversary of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach at the Ayala Museum
(SPOT.ph) Remember that time Kanye West and Paul McCartney did a collab and children tweeted about it, saying Kanye is going to make this Paul "guy" famous? It’s almost unthinkable, yet it really happened. Just as some people probably wig out when they hear you refer to "Suite No. 3 in D, BWV 1068: 2. Air" as that tune from the anime Evangelion.
You see, no matter how big The Beatles were, people are people and they forget. Maybe even fail to appreciate the simple sensibilities of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" in the same way that it takes quite a bit of effort to understand why Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the greatest composers who ever lived.
For the folks who do remember, Ayala Museum is rewarding you with the greatest mash-up involving John, Paul, George, Ringo, and Johann. On March 26, they’re giving the floor to the Manila Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Professor Arturo Molina, and celebrating two classics.
Bring a friend, one who is likely to tweet about Kanye more than Paul, and live the museum’s motto: Inspire every day! Bach’s music is best appreciated live, a pity in the age of headphones and file-sharing, so give someone the gift of live strings playing something that makes you want to have tea, followed by an orchestral arrangement of "Eleanor Rigby" and "Hey Jude." Sound good?
