Quote from: premont on May 30, 2023, 10:56:33 AMI never thought that the "Affectlehre" could be applied strictly to Bach. If you look at his compositions in b-minor eg. you will find many different affects "portrayed". Take the WTC book I with the consoling prelude and the fugue with the heart-breaking chromatic writing. Or book II with the dramatic prelude and the light playful fugue. And how to explain that the French Ouverture from CÛ II originated in a c-minor composition which was transposed to b-minor. Which affect does has this piece display? The b-minor organ prelude (BWV 544) is extremely dramatic with an air of Good Friday, but its fugue is very balanced and harmonic even in the last and more compact part.
Quote from: Mandryka on May 30, 2023, 11:30:11 AMWell I'd have to know more about the affects associated with c minor and d minor to answer that! I thought the application in the violin sonatas sounded good (Agsteribbe and Neve), and indeed I like Cera's French Suites (especially when he's being moody in the early suites - something original there) and Egarr"s English Suites.

Quote from: vers la flamme on June 01, 2023, 02:20:15 PMThoughts on Wolfgang Rübsam's recent recordings of the French Suites, English Suites and Partitas on the lautenwerck for Brilliant? I like his Goldberg Variations on Naxos very much, though my appreciation for that recording was a long time coming; my revisitations of it, followed by an initial negative reaction, were encouraged by comments by Mandryka and a few others here who were extremely enthusiastic about it at the time. But I've heard very little about these more recent Brilliant recordings.
Quote from: Mandryka on June 01, 2023, 06:28:49 PMI think they're reissues of his previous lute harpsichord recordings. Are you sure there are English Suites?
Quote from: vers la flamme on June 01, 2023, 07:15:30 PMAh, it was the Toccatas that I saw, not the English Suites. I seem to recall that he had self-released some lute harpsichord recordings that were available on his website, is this what these are?
