Hmmm, I Don't Think So.

Flicking through the channels here in the Mad town I came across classical music videos. The video that most caught my attention did not catch it by visual but by the audio. It was the coffee cantata which was a very catchy piece. However, the video was cheesy to say the least.

Streams of roasted beans falling and any coffee beverages, were of course not coffee but "capacinos". I suspect in JS Bach's time coffee was mostly served black. The reason for live classical music is not to see it but to fully hear it. Live classical music is a special treat because there is so much sound recording and playback can not capture.
