While not strictly classical, many would argue that jazz is a genre of serious and art music. GMG will trial this board for discussion of all things jazz. If well-used, it will stay. If it withers, it may die. Happy to take comments. Mods, feel free to move relevant posts to this board.

Cheers

Beethoven's Op. 133 -- A fugue so bad that even Beethoven himself called it "Grosse".

Brewski

Thanks much, Rob - I like it already!

Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach
