CLASSICAL OPUS no.90

Johannes Sebastian Bach: “English Suite no.2 in A Minor”

ヨハネス・セバスチャン・バッハ:「英語の第2番の小曲」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 24 minutes

 

Stout and vehemently didactic, the suite enraptures us with its mechanical perfectness.  A rich variety of tone qualities lands on the keyboard, initially with little in the way of percussive decisiveness.  This is unusual for a baroque piece, but the style will change completely for the bourée, at 17th minute mark.  Originally written for harpsichord, here it is performed by Ivo Pogorelic, the pianistic enfant terrible of the early 1980s.

A REFLECTION

In love, nothing exists between heart and heart.

Speech is born out of longing,

True description from the real taste.

The one who tastes, knows;

the one who explains, lies.
