Bach In Rock: Counterpoint Gets The Axe.  Yes, you read it correctly, this is a playlist from Beats Music. Every Friday I’ll seek out a quirky playlist – something that intrigues or dumbfounds; a playlist that is multiple degrees off-center.Beats Rock genre

This week the discovery is Bach In Rock – as in classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach, in Rock music.  A Beats Music curator has assembled 14 songs that overtly or subtly point to elements from baroque music.  Bach was one of the giants of the baroque period, hence we have this quirky playlist.  In the curators’ own words:

 …this list rounds up some quality counterpuntal and/or Bach-tinged tracks by art-flavored rock bands and classic songwriters.
