We hear from violinist Hilary Hahn about learning to play Johann Sebastian Bach’s music at the age of four. She still loves to play his work as a soloist – but also with other musicians. She says everyone feels good when they play Bach.
Concerto for Two Violins in D minor BWV 1043; Concerto for Oboe and Violin in c minor, BWV 1060; Fuga from Sonata No. 3 in C major for solo violin, and other selections by J.S. Bach, performed by Hilary Hahn.

Also on the show: scamming the scammers.
