Tonight on Mozart’s Attic at 10:00: Selections from the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach will be featured this week.

The blank book was a present from Johann Sebastian Bach to his wife in which she could copy down some of her favorite pieces written by her husband, by members of her extended family, and by some of the other composers of the day.

It was a scrapbook, and it gives a glimpse of what an evening's relaxation might have been like in the notoriously busy Bach household.
