Re: Bach 2000s/Is there any bad music by
- If you want to hear a deliberately "bad" piece by
Bach, listen to cantata BWV 201 "The Contest between
Phoebus and Pan". The aria sung by King Midas, just
before he grows ass's ears is deliberately bad (this is
self-explanatory - just listen to it!). I know all 1080 or so
works listed in the catalogue, and I have never found
an unintentionally bad piece among them, and as you
note, even Beethoven could write pretty uninspired
works on occasion (as well as masterpieces). You should
also listen to the "peasant" cantata for some music
written in a deliberately "rustic" style. Bach's
commissioned works are all masterpieces - and he re-used them,
never letting anything good go to waste - good, thrifty
Lutheran that he was.
