Re: A Wondering in E flat Minor BWV 501
- Hi, Ray.<br><br>One thing about Bach: he worked
very hard, and felt a strong work ethic. Someone once
asked him "how he did it" and he replied (rather
pissily, if you ask me) "Any fool could do what I do if he
worked hard enough."<br><br>All that notwithstanding,
when he arrived at the Boys' School (in Leipzig?),
where he spent a large portion of his life, he promptly
turned over much of the teaching to a hired teacher . .
. so he could spend more time composing!<br><br>Are
you a player of Bach's music? Anyone else? I have a
piano, and am (slowly) going through the pieces of
Bach's that I love very much. I'm limited by my
childhood training, but that doesn't quell my enthusiam!
- Hi again it's been a while.<br>Someone here gave me a tip on wich book to get if I wanted to learn how to write fuges.<br>But I can't remember the name of the book.<br>Hope you can help me.
