Back for more punishment.

2015-08-06: “Margrave” sounds like a Dr. Who villain

Back to the Baroque with Bach (and light alliteration). Again, I couldn’t find the recording I wanted, but this one is a pretty good substitute. A lot of renditions of this piece are much slower and “stately,” which I’m really not into. They will tend to lose one of the things I like most about it: the gradual build-up and then exuberant release of musical tension, which happens several times throughout.

I could talk about Bach all day. But I won’t. Not today, anyway.
