Bach wrote many great fugues. I think he really enjoyed writing fugues and became so good at it.
I also like the Classical sense of drama Mozart displays in;
^notice how the section at 0:50 is different in feel from the one at 3:00
Missa longa K.262 - Et vitam venturi
^I think the dissonant strettos (18:11, 18:42) are wonderful
Litaniae de venerabili altaris sacramento K.243 - VIII. Pignus futurae gloriae:
^this is thought to be inspired by a Pignus double fugue by M. Haydn, just as K.339/iv was inspired by the Cum sanctis tuis from M. Haydn's C minor requiem. I really want M. Haydn's litanies recorded as I'm eager to know how good his are too.
I'll go with option B for all the above.hammeredklavier said:"The sort of holy music that evokes nostalgia for the ancient past."
"The sort of outdated music that should belong to a museum."
both views are equally valid.
Sure, but I like how this has "gradations" in terms of mood changes and dynamics, btw:I'll go with option B for all the above.
I'll still go with option B. The point is, hammered, these little oblique attacks on Bach can be used to absolutely nuke the composers and works you're continually advocating here. If Bach belongs in a museum, these would be in the basement.Sure, but I like how this has "gradations" in terms of mood changes and dynamics, btw:
(13:18, 13:24 and 14:34)
(5:32 and 7:15)
