Videos - Scarlatti
John became famous for his work with the Natural Theatre Company - particulary their series of hilarious shows based on the life of Dominico Scarlatti in which John often played in the persona of Johann Sebastian Bach. These shows toured in Europe for many years - particularly in Germany where the cast, and John in particular, became very well-known. These videos are taken from some of those tours.
There are further videos of John with various other musicians here.
