    Hi guys, does anyone have sheet music for Bach Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor BVW 582 transcribed by Krystian Zimerman. Here you can find the recording: It is the best transcription in my opinion but unfortunately I am not able to find any sheet music. Regards

    I seem to have come across a case of plagiarism by Bach. It's known that he liked Vivaldi but all he was known to do, was to knowingly transcribe his concertos. Now, I heard this, and I'm sure that if Bach were Andrew Lloyd Webber, Vivaldi might have tried to sue him.

    Which recording of the chaconne from Bach's partita no. 2 to listen to?
  5. Classical Music Discussion
    For a long time I've cast about for a way to describe Glen Gould's playing of Bach, particularly when he ratchets down the tempo (note second Goldberg Variations). The phrase is "respect for the music." The music just shines. You're not listening to Glen Gould, you're listening to Bach. Do...

    Hi! This is not a Bach vs Mozart vs Beethoven thread. I do not care who's the greatest composer in your mind or if you find one or two or all three overrated. I am a classic music lover who has some basic knowledge of music theory (I have a license in solfeggio taken when I was in highschool). I...

    With the first five measures limitation, I'd expect answers having to do with orchestration, chord structure, maybe short motifs, but please, no replies having to do with the overall structure, or length of phrases, etc. Yesterday and today I listened to all of Bach's sinfonias in chronological...

    There are plenty that I know of, which I shall let others mention as a way of discussion and conglomerating several such Fugues into one post, but I want to share what I think beats them all, from Jan Dismas Zelenka's Missa Omnium Sanctorum, ZWV 21 - a chromatic leaping up and down subject that...

    Some of the most contrapuntal, beautiful and harmonically daring music of the Baroque right here - and it is not even Bach! Such a underrated composer I am happy to share; here is my analysis of the 2 musical settings (which I as a transcriber am currently making Urtext edition scores from the...

    Hello, I am very frustrated because I cannot find the strings version (which was used in The Aviator movie about Howard Hughes) of Bach's Toccata & Fugue anywhere. The strings version of this song was also used in the movie Fantasia, and I bought a copy of that MP3 but it is very dated...

    Jan Dismas Zelenka, the "Czech Bach's" miraculous Missa Gratias agimus tibi. ZWV 13. With manuscript score I arranged from IMSLP, and currently working on a urtext edition of to release in the future:

    Hi friends, This is actually a topic about buying Bach's music for keyboard. So some pieces are easy to find and others are simply not available, even from Leipzig museum. ....Then I found on the internet, PDFs without any copyright marks of _all_ of Bach's keyboard works. So I looked it up...

    Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier consists of two sets of 24 Preludes and Fugues - the first set was composed in 1722 and second twenty years later. Bach said of the first set that they were intended: "for the profit and use of musical youth desirous of learning, and especially for the pastime of...

    I made the video linked below about fugues mainly for use in my own music appreciation courses, but after being laid off and the covid pandemic I have decided to try to grow my yt channel because I love making videos about classical music and music appreciation (and I can really use the side...

    Hi friends, First post, question about counting beats in bwv 874 Präludium V in D maj. ...measure 5, left hand, first three beats (12/8 so first three eighth notes) seems J Gould plays it like two beats on the high d, one beat on the low d. So Why not notate the first two beats with a...

    Since some months ago I literally can't stop listening to Gould's Bach recordings. I'm now convinced he is the greatest pianist that ever lived. He's just pure genius. I think his revolutionary philosophy for playing Bach is ultimately a mixture of clear and dry sound, and a lot of analysis of...

    My choir is performing three Bach Cantatas (106, 161, 182) with orchestra and I am on the hunt for orchestral scores that may be in the public domain (as we cannot afford purchasing them). The ones found at imslp.org are insufficient and at times have errors; similarly for bach-cantatas.com. Can...

    Brandenburg Concertos, Karl Richter and the Munich Bach Orchestra All concertos are pure unadulterated awesomeness from start to finish, the sound of the recording, the tempi and dynamics chosen, the spirit, energy, and expressiveness in which these are performed, this is my favorite recorded...
