I'm not big on any of the PSM composers but even I have to
admit Bach performed by the expert hands of Wendy Carlos can
be quite good, in spite of the composer's disgusting
anti-Semitism. Wendy is also a champion for trans rights,
which is huge in my book—did you know she fought against
the vile transphobic rhetoric of Momus in court and won?
It's just a shame she doesn't seem to be recording
anymore... I'd love to hear her do a Switched-On Women and
Non-Binary Composers of Color album

I suppose the question you have to ask is will the future
king of israel revive js bach or let him pass into hell. I
believe JS Bach has a place in the world to come. That’s
just my belief.

As for wendy her music is great. But she’s a bit trigger
happy with her lawyers shutting down vids on youtube where
people play classical music on their synth. I hate that.

The fact is pretty much all the non-Jewish PSM composers
were anti-Semitic. The St. John Passion contains some vile
tropes, to give one well-known example from Bach's oeuvre.

Well they were Christians in a Christian age.

B minor mass, Goldberg variations, partitas (both piano and
violin), well tempered clavier 1 and 2, st Matthew passion
and BWV 639. That last one had a nice synth rendition from
the Solaris soundtrack. Bach is incredible. What's PSM?

chopin is much more gifted than back. I didn't research
either but I suspect bach is like a rich elitist who plays
for royalty and is highly educated, meaning indoctrinated in
prevailing groupthink and mainstream, whereas chopin is
innately gifted and creates from inner passion and drive as
a poet of the piano.

just look at pics.
bach= powdered wig = embracing trendiness of the time, it's
reflected in his music. I think he mostly uses simple
geometric symmetry like copy paste in a round or mirror flip
etc.
chopin= no powdered wig, he sees through the trendiness and
thinks outside the box, probably has inner hate for the
powdered wig fags, the eminems and lady gagas of their time.

Between 2015 and 2017 I wasn't able to look at treetops
without having the first 4 bars of the Allemande of the
Cello Suite in G in mind. It was a pretty good experience. I
still sometimes wish that at least some trees or other
plants would, when the wind brushes them, 'sing' Bach
pieces. ... You would walk down a field and then the wind
blows and then you hear every blade of glass 'singing' the
Art of the Fugue. Different blades of grass would do
different voices. That's a world I want to live in.

"their time" - you mean the 125 year gap between Bach's and
Chopin's birth?

Ha ha Chopin is more technical maybe but other than that you
are comparing two rather different types of composers.

Oi oi, horsefactory! I miss our odd chats from back in the
day! Are you still into trainers? I stopped ages ago but
once in a while I’ll drool over a pair!

You had that pair of fives I kinda regret never having had
because they’ve become rather iconic.

Hey man! Not really either, just one at a time these days. I
got some NB 991s not too long ago. Hope life is treating you
well

this:
LAZY_TITLE

and art of the fugue

his mind was that of a musical god. maybe some like w M w
find him stiff, but his music was full of music really

his is so compact. he uses the same stuff in different
alternations but in a very musical way, its not a copy paste
fiesta.

chopin was a very gifted pianist and composer, but in a way
he sounds dull compared to bach (whom he admired deeply)
liszt would be a more suitable contender, I think. he pushed
the limits of the musical thinking of his time.
