Stop starting fights, you're being an elitist prick, and I really don't think you've got the musical balls to take on Nathan, because he's a far more experienced, mature, and open-minded musician than you are.Thats easy to say out of the blue, you have no idea how much musical experience i have, does this need to turn into some childish dickfight? Who are you anyway.
I'm a composer, a classical pianist, and I know more music theory and history than you will ever possess.
Ill take you calling me elitist as a compliment, atleast i know you have no musical knowledge yourself
I can see how that's a logical conclusion, seeing that I just made a brilliant argument using examples from 4 eras of "classical" music, and cited specific individuals.
:now saying that bach was expressing himself, bach wasnt expressing anything.. he was uncovering something, the logic behind the sound.
Bach was expressing something, if you knew the first thing about the man, you would know that he was a very devout Lutheran who believed that the SOLE purpose of music was to express love and fear of God. His music is hardly about logic, he did not use music theory, he was not aware of the idea of double dominants or major seventh chords, but he used them. He used them because of their beauty, and because they did serve a function. Theoreticians did not look back until much later after his death, and then in turn, they devised the rules and theory and "logic", if you will, by looking over what he did and recognising patterns.
Have a nice day.
And you as well. Your "classical" works are rubbish.
