Bach as "digital" and "live"
« on: February 04, 2016, 04:29:39 AM »

Sounds as Bach to "digit" or the upright piano is not the essence of this movie. One player, different musical instruments and classical music. Tastes differ. The idea of the film to convey for a simple layman and professional musicians that music great genius survived the centuries. Bach is very "alive", even if it is a digital piano "Yamaha"

Somewhere or other I have an LP of the Brandenburg suites played on a synthesizer, back when synthesizers were brand new.  Very different, but the music -- and Bach's genius -- is clearly respected and beautifully done.  Some types of music it really doesn't matter what you play it on, provided the artist playing is an artist!

I agree with you. Bach certainly sounds different in the digital and acoustic piano, but the genius of his music  is essentially " we are haering new sounds as would for us unknown  earlier  Bach"
