KASS Music Gem of the Day: Karl Richter Plays Toccata and Fugue by Bach
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2009-04-05 07:38
Prompted by the posts on the Music of the Gods and Catholicism threads, I'm going to add a post each day under this title, which might be sub-titled Romanticism for Dummies, linking to an example of music of the gods off YouTube.
The idea is to give devotees of headbanging caterwauling filth the wherewithal to extricate themselves from the gutter, and to provide daily emotional fuel for those already out of it. This inaugural piece is not actually Romantic; it's Baroque. But the Romanticists stood on Bach's shoulders. He was the Aristotle of music. Watch and you'll see what I mean:
As I said on the MoG thread: I'd pit it against any drugged-out screaming sewer-souled chainsaw-and-jackhammer-wielding metal zombie any day. Be sure not to miss the footwork about 5' 45" in.
