Kimiko Ishizaka does a great job to bring Bach's composition to life

The 10th variation makes me feel like stopping whatever I am doing and just listen to it. Variation 15 brought me a feeling of melancholy out of the blue. I felt the joy in the start of the 22nd variation and it brought me a smile. Only real music does that to people.
