Johann Sebastian Bach, Frederic Chopin and Philipp Glass are the composers whom I listen to as unironically as to the Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble.

One thought on “Wagner vs. Bach, 1

  1. Generally the faces of Western Art Music are seen as overrated here (though I concede there still being great works from all 3):
    Bach – The Art of Fugue, BWV1080
    Beethoven – ‘Appassionata’ Sonata
    Mozart – Piano Sonata No.8 in A Minor, K.310

    I like Chopin’s 24 Preludes, Op. 28 quite a lot. But that’s all. What about Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition?

    Franz Liszt is the all time GOAT, and not Wagner (sorry Hitler).

    The top 3 atm are late-Liszt:
    Nuages gris, S.199
    La lugubre gondola, S.200 (2 movements)
    Unstern! sinistre, disastro, S.208

    Music doesn’t get any more profound than these 3.
