Fugal counterpoint illustrated

Post  pinhedz on Wed Jun 17, 2015 4:26 am

One critic suggested that, although Henry Purcell had clearly "striven to do well" in his Fantasias for Viols," the thematic development consisted, in part, of "a good many of retorts, reverts and inverts, of which the audience was little sensible."


The audience was, of course, "little sensible" only because Purcell didn't include any instructions to the musicians on appropriate body movements.
PDQ Bach knew that stage business is critical to music appreciation.
