J S Bach
Johann Sebastian Bach's music has a sound of something flowing, always in motion. He was expert at doing a sort of musical maths called counterpoint. Counterpoint is a bit like putting musical shapes together.
What sort of counterpoint (musical shapes)can you hear in the examples?
Does his music change mood during the course of a piece, or stay the same?
Many people thought that J S Bach’s was too focused on counterpoint and missed other parts musical story telling. Do you agree?
