The WTF Bach Podcast

Bonus: Listener’s Choice: You asked, I talked.

July 24, 2020

This is the third bonus episode.

 

You know how at the end of every episode, Gaby says, "Want to have evan analyze a specific piece of Bach... just for you?"

 

Boom: Listener's choice volume one.

 

Three pieces you requested were:

Prelude and Fugue in E minor, BWV855 (Book one)

Prelude and Fugue in C-sharp minor, BWV849 (Book one)

Capriccio on the Departure of the Beloved Brother, BWV992

 

--

Forgive my delay in getting this to all of you: I have a noble undertaking regarding a popular Bach book which is doing nothing but leading you further from the truth about the master! But have no fear, in a few weeks I will unleash an attack and clear up this confusion: meanwhile please enjoy my brief analysis of these three pieces which, in their own right, could take up many episodes each.

 

Also: Lament Aria: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lament_bass

 

Follow me on IG! Right now I am instagramming inner movements of the cello suites on a portable clavichord: @wtfbach

 

As always, thanks for listening,
