...So I say, thank you !! And also I say church organs aren't bound to rule at playing parts from the pre-industrial era.


Now did anybody long for some clashing / roaring devices on any of those renderings ? 




Here's my try with the added layers...

BWV 651 is told to be a favorite of Joseph Ratzinger...

...Now how about heavy rock gear on it (re-uploaded with some flaws fixed)



Wouldn't Joseph Emeritus bet on a quieter call ?

Is it ok if I add to this?
 
When it came out, I do not think it was that great ... and even my own father who already had over 3k LP's of classical music from the earliest to the latest, made the comment that it looked like something for a fair and fun a lot more than it was designed to be "classical" music. I agreed, actually, though my dad misinterpreted Tomita later because of it!
 
As represented in the Stanley Kubrick film, it made more sense, as it was used almost as a cartoon, and not a meaningful piece of music compared to the other pieces used in that film and his film before that.
 
I've never thought that it was serious music, but it helped bring classical music out a bit more to the "masses", while also making people better acquainted with the synthesizer and its sound ... and that helped, eventually, make the "progressive" new bands sound better and the sound more acceptable. Which consequently fueled what became known as "progressive" because of so much synth work ... and specially solos.
 
But the best mix for me, is pretty much around a lot of the folk music bands in England and its northern areas, where they mix anything with everything, and you get some nice mixes, and then one day you get Steeleye Span and feedback and you wonder if the sky fell off the mountain or something!
 
And of course, there is always Gryphon, whose music was used in a National Theater production and helped it gain fame for the band and the production itself! But then, the National Theater needed no introduction and has a history of ... gads ... I have to look, but it's more than 75, and might even be 100 years!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

There are quite a few more "groovy" BWV's waiting for their rock gear treatment, but not all the BWV used in the film industry, isn't it ?

I find it well done, if you like that type of thing. For my taste it is horrendous though. The counterpoint and the general idea is well preserved considering the instruments being used. But I don't enjoy it. Not at all. I used to have the LP (well, my dad actually) and even as a child I found it funny. As I got more and more into the Master's music as I was growing up, I found Carlos' work devoid of any interest.

"Switched on Bach" is not as expressive as hearing an orchestral Brandenburg Concerto or J Powers Biggs blasting through the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, but I think it's still cool for a couple of reasons.  First it introduced the music of JSB to many people who otherwise would never have heard it in their ordinary listening.  Second, it came at a time when the Moog had been only used for sound effects or novelty records...as such, it proved the theory that this new invention was capable of producing "serious" music.  I liken that to Frank Zappa's "Francesco Zappa" album where his synclavier is used for a similar "proof of concept".
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Anybody heard of Chip Davis aka Manheim Steamroller? Their "Toccata" from 1979's Fresh Aire III I owned as a vinyl 12" EP. My friends and I would listen to it at 33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpms and argue over which version was better. ALL sounded perfect! such was the outstanding sound quality of American Gramaphone.

I don't know if we should call it a baroque piece, but since it features a harpsichord and they call it Toccata they must be baroque lovers.

On Youtube it's celebrated with lots of thumbs up and not a single thumb down !

Next one !!






...No rock band gear ( why not get back to it later ), but If you should discover a non baroque treatment of BWV 671, I'd vote for that one...
