Your syntax around where you called be 'schrodi' confused me a bit. But yeah, it would make perfect sense that the earliest works of a composer would be experimental. How early in Bach's youth was the work written?

Which prelude and fugue is the wedge, exactly? Was it 548 or another one?

Hm, yeah, I can hear the similarities between those and some of Bach's organ music. BuxWV 142 seems the most obvious of them. By the way, has 163 had any influence had any influence on Handel? 'Cos whenever I listen to it, I think part of it sounds eerily similar to Handel's chorus from Messiah, "An...

I've heard the organ pieces on that list (except the partitas), and I don't think most of it is rotten. BWV 566 and 563 are bland, so I don't really listen to them, but I like the other ones. Actually, 574 was one of my favorites, but if it's after Legrenzi (who I've actually never heard of before.....

When someone's truly passionate about doing something, the regret they'd feel for not doing it would be much worse than the bad finnancial situation Atkatz put himself into. Most people would rather put up with the regret of not reaching for their dreams if their dreams were too risky, required too ...

jbuck, I found one CD with Reincken on it on the site, but it didn't specify which songs. But the sheet music site has a lot of results. Thank you. Val, I think was able to find the CD's you were talking about. The Musica Antiqua Koeln, is that a three CD set? Premont, thanks for the link. I think I...

I feel too lazy right now to look up my sources and exact numbers (I'm on the forums right now to avoid doing homework anyway), but here's some info of scientific relevance on the topic of anthropogenic (ie, caused by humans) climate change. I won't go into politics, because I'm not particularly kno...

Thanks for the welcome, jbuck. And yes, you were right about my alias. I suppose organ music from the Baroque can be considered simplistic, especially when compared to more modern organ compositions. But it does sound good (I don't know what kinds of organs I have them played on, just that one of th...

I'm not sure what the deal with him was either, but I think excessive drinking and obsession with women had something to do with it. (And I think he lived to 99 anyway, not 79. But that bit would only suggest an ever larger output.) Still, one would think that more music by him should be more easily...

Jan Adams Reincken

I'm very much into organ music from the Baroque era, and I happened to come across compositions by Reincken (a fugue in G minor and a toccata in G major) on compilation CD's with various composers' works. I was very impressed by these works, and wanted to find more by Reincken, but I'm having troubl...
